Typical UL Speed should be..??

Greetings
As a simple rule of thumb what should I be experiencing as a typical (ball park) UL speed using PlusNet Unlimited Fibre?
Just thought I'd check before I launched into a moan :-)

Re: Typical UL Speed should be..??

Hi there
The codes for FTTC don't relate to different services but more to the estimated quality of the line. For example FTTC Range A (Clean) is what we would expect you to get after a engineer install and the line has no physical faults.
FTTC Range B (Impacted) applies more towards self install and the potential of any other factors that could impact the line e.g. Bridge taps, aluminium wiring and so on.
I can see your current upload speeds are around the 4mbps mark which is within the range for your line.
Are you seeing any particular issues with your upload speeds?

Re: Typical UL Speed should be..??

Thank you for the reply which is appreciated.
Based on the figures, and your explanation of same, no I'm not experiencing any issue with my UL speed, it is performing as expected.
The issue is clearly with my expectations, I'm used to working on a line that has a typical upload speed in the 20-30mb range, trying to work from home now clearly still isn't the utopia that Raymond Baxter promised me it would be all those years ago. I haven't got my robot butler yet either, so he has more than just slow internet to answer for!
I'll check back in 10 years and see if things have improved.
Again though, thank you for the explanation.
