      Upload speed increase?

      I have had Sky broadband for just over a week know and am VERY happy with the service so far, but i have one question......Is there a way to improve my upload speed?....i have read many threads about download speed increases but cannot find how to increase upload speeds. Below are my speedtest results, i am more than happy about the download speed, but think i could get a better upload, the stats on the router tell me i have 764 kbps upload but i dont get anywhere near that.

      Any help would be appreciated

      Connecting at about 764k and getting 641k is probably close enough including all the network overheards of about ~80-75%.

      Re: Upload speed increase?

      i have seen a few people with upload speeds of 700kbps plus, is there ANY way i could increase the upload speed?

      Thanks for your reply

      P.S...has anyone got a good speedtest site for bigger connections? it seems the popular ones only just get going as the test finishes

      If you know a bit and your connection is solid and you never reboot or anything.

      You could try PC Tweaking tools, Like TCPOptimizer and Cablenut, Those apps help you tweak the setting on your PC side to help you get the most you can possibly get.

      No they don't. They tell you that you have an upstream sync of 764kbps.

      As Fibre has already pointed out, with transmission overheads, your upload speed of 650kbps is about as good as you can get.

      Re: Upload speed increase?

      ive seen some peoples connection at over 1000kbps upload, mines 796kbps upload and get around 690kbps, so unless you have a very good line 796kbps will be the best you can sync. (i think)

      This thread is over 2 years old
      Many now have uploads in excess of 1000kbps.

      Just phone sky and ask to speak to CST and they will increase your upstream speed as high as it will go and with sky that is not all that high really.
