My Speed Correct?

Hi Guys
                Done a couple of speed checks including BT Wholesale and for my contract download speed seems correct at around 7mbps but upload comes in around 0.34mbps which seems low or does this looking right to you,
                I can of course give more details if you think its a bit low for a 8mbps contract on the upload side that is

                  Regards binzy

Posting your router stats will help answer that question - see speed issues thread below.
That speed is about right. Depending on which service BTw provide at your exchange you might be able to get a bit more US for free. If it is their old technology platform, more speed can be had for an additional monthly fee.

Re: My Speed Correct?

Thanks for the quick reply, I have just renewed my contract here for another 12 months as im happy with the 8mbps connection for 95p a month plus i keep my phoneline and calls package as well the exchange is fibre ready and i only live 100 metres from it so could get a massive boost in speed if i paid extra i think. but the upload speed confused me a bit bit if you think that is normal then no problem, so thanks for your help

Re: My Speed Correct?

if you are only 100m from the exchange you may be on a line direct from the exchange rather than via a cab so fibre may not be an option- put your phone number in here to check http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/ADSLChecker.TelephoneNumberOutput

Hi,
That available service report indicates that you are on the older CN20 service. Your upload speed is therefore in the right ball park, without the paid for faster US options.
