Change Upload Speed?

I'm wondering if its possible to increase my upload speed? I want to start uploading videos to Youtube but currently a 10min (300mb) 720p file will take roughly 140mins, which means its more going to be an overnight thing Sad just wondering can a get even a slight increase to cut that down ? I know I wont get the same speed as download speed but feel I should get something faster than what I currently get.
Also if there is a way plusnet side to increase upload will it effect my download speed settings? (i know you can only do one or the other, can't get max download at the same as max upload) I just don't want to mess with my current download speed. this is due to recently moving from one building to another on the same RAF base (ie I got a better single man room) but for some reason my net speed went from 2.5mb to roughly 7mb! and I don't want to mess with that. Its great having that speed again, means I can stream stuff again and watch HD vidoes without loads of buffering.
My current Speedtest.net results


These are my current stats from my router

Re: Change Upload Speed?

Do you know if you are on a 21CN exchange? If you are you can just ask for your line to be uncapped - it should have very little affect on your download. The actual speed you get will depend on your line and it's free.
If your exchange if 20CN only the only option is Max Premium which costs an extra £7.83 per month. That gives you 832 kbps upload.

Re: Change Upload Speed?

Well according to the plusnet exchange checker its classed as 21CN exchange, but I don't know if my line is actually on that.
And I thought I was on the highest package Plusnet provided, Extra with Pro add-on, didn't realize there was another add-on I could add if need be.

Re: Change Upload Speed?

Does your router support ADSL2+? Your downstream attenuation of 41.8 dB and sync speed of 8128kbps fits typical ADSL2/2+ values but with an upstream sync speed of exactly 448kbps It looks like the router is connecting using G.992.1/G.DMT/ADSL1.

Hi there,
You're line's provided on 20CN/ADSL1. It looks like you have one of our routers so I've placed an order to move you across to ADSL2+ with uncapped upload (up to 1.3Mbps dependent on line conditions). The order should complete at some point on the 27th September.

Re: Change Upload Speed?

I'm using my own bought router
Buffalo WBMR-HP-G300H ADSL2+ (Product Link) though they don't make it anymore, its a discontinued product
The DSL settings are set to Multimode
but it does have options like
ADSL2
ADSL2+
ADSL2 Annex L
ADSL2 Annex M
ADSL2+ Annex M
And thanks for doing the Line change Bob Smiley hopefully I won't lose that good download speed I've been getting.
