Slow Upload Speed

We regularly from an extremely slow upload speed, (and below average download speed for the predicted range, but thats another matter) and I am unsure how to find out if the stated 1 MBPS is the maximum we can get, or if it has been capped. 

We're about 100m from our nearest exchange, if that's helpful.  TIA fro any suggestions

Trying popping your phone number into the link below and see what you line is capable of.

Re: Slow Upload Speed

Ah this is handy, thank you. 

Showing our capability is 1.5, so not much difference I guess.

Shame, it's very frustrating to have a file upload take several hours!

Re: Slow Upload Speed

100 m from exchange ?   and what service have you?  ADSL or FTTC ? 

 

100 m =  300 feet, like you live next door to the exchange?

Lol, yes pretty much! It's at the end of my road 😃

We're ADSL, but considering the upgrade to fibre if it means our upload speeds improve.

Re: Slow Upload Speed

🙂  

ADSL should be quite quick !  but check that there is a green cabinet between you and the exchange as fibre (FTTC)  is not available "direct" from the exchange i.s. the green box has to be in the loop.  I have no idea about FTTP (direct to premises) and connectivity but this is a bit more expensive.

 

You should easily be in the 50 Mbps range at that distance with FTTC.
