Raise Upload Speed

Hi. As I have an online web store and it is taking ages to upload items can my upload speed be raised, would it affect downloads  and would I have to change any setting in my router
Thanks

Re: Raise Upload Speed

welcome to the forum Smiley
are you on adsl1 or 2 do you know? that will help in determining your options.

Re: Raise Upload Speed

Correction: Are you on 20CN ADSL Max  or 21CN WBC ADSL is the correct question to ask (you can be on ADSL1 over 21CN and still have uncapped upload).

Re: Raise Upload Speed

Your getting too technical now, lol
I'm positive its ADSL2, I just tried to login to my router to check but cannot remember the login details, I have them written down somewhere
I am getting approx 10500 kbps download and 376 kbps upload at the moment

Re: Raise Upload Speed

That's OK then. If the download is faster than 8Mbps you are on 21CN and uncapping the upload is free (on 20CN it costs extra).

If it's a Plusnet supplied router look on it's bottom!

Re: Raise Upload Speed

I've placed an order for your upload speeds to be uncapped - this should take effect as over the early hours on Tuesday morning.

You don't need to do anything at your end.
