Upload speed cap!

Hi,
I joined plusnet just under a month ago and since then my upload speeds have been very low (0.4Mbps max whether wireless or wired connection).  I thought at first it might just be something to do with the line speeds varying through the first ten days, but it's still slow 2 weeks after that ended.  I've done a little reading on here and I've seen a lot of people mentioning a cap on the upload speeds.  If there's such a cap on my account can it be removed please?  Let me know if you need any account details and the best way to provide them.
Thanks  Smiley

Re: Upload speed cap!

Hi again Chris,
Good news and bad news.  The good news is that my upload speeds have now increased from 0.4Mbps to 0.9Mbps (yay  Cheesy).  The bad news is that at exactly the same time, my download speeds dropped from 13-16Mbps to 6.5-6.9Mbps (boo  Sad).
Could you look into this for me please?
Thanks,
Cate.

Hi Categlover,
It depends on your router - see here for guidance http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/frogstats.php
Note other links there which also explain what the figures mean.

Re: Upload speed cap!

Not sure what happened, there. It looks as though the change caused a temporary bad sync event.
Everything looks to be back to normal, if you can log into your router and hit the 'Disconnect' and 'Connect' again, you should see the profile re-align for you.
Sorry about that!

Re: Upload speed cap!

That seems to have done it, Chris.  Many thanks.  Grin
Thanks also to Townman for your assistance.  Lucky I didn't have to do those stats as my router was about the only one not listed in the link you sent (It's a TP-Link)  Wink
I'll keep an eye on things for the next few days and let you know if anything changes.
Thanks again, folks.  Kudos all round
