Slow upload speed what can I do?

Hi, dl is around 20mbs,upload is 1mbs according to speedtest. However it feels way slower than that. I.e. a 300 meg file takes about 20 minutes where according to the speedtest it should be more like 5 minutes?

 

Working from home and I am having to upload a lot of data. Mostly meaning I need to leave the computer uploading at the end of each day. Is there anything I can do to get a better upload speed?

 

Resetting router etc, makes no difference.

 

Cheers - Aten

Re: Slow upload speed what can I do?

@eggsbenedict If you are on ADSL, the max upload speed profile is 1.2Mb/s, and from the information you have posted, you are getting very close to that.

If you are uploading and downloading at the same time, then your actual upload will be considerably less.

Resetting the router will not have any effect - you can't change the physics.

You have posted on the ADSL, not fibre board. If you are really on ADSL then this is as good as it gets. If you want a faster connection you will need to upgrade to fibre. To see what your op[tions are put your phone number in here.   https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL

Yeah I thought as much, I'll have to look into getting an upgrade in that case.
