Is your connection idle at the time of running the test? Any other activity could potentially reduce the available upload speeds.

Out of curiosity, have you tried rebooting your router?

It's definitely a pretty odd fault, and there would be nothing at this end preventing your upload speeds. We also never hit our peak amount of upload traffic on our centrals either, so it's not a restriction at that end.

If it is a wireless router, I would definitely have a look at ensuring that it is secure, just in case.

Erm, and if you use a Laptop with a Centrino processor, the power saving 'features' have been known to cause lower throughput.

Clutching perhaps at straws a little - perhaps you could explain briefly your set-up?

I'm guessing your wiring is like:

Computer ---> Router ---> Filter ---> Master Socket?

Do you have a spare microfilter lying around? It's a long shot, given that you download speeds are okay, but I'm running out of ideas, fast.

Well, that possibly suggests that you had a dodgy microfilter and at least it has improved your speed and latecy.

With regards to the upload speed, I'm afraid I'm out of ideas so am hopeful that someone else might have some!
