I used a wired connection, and as requested here are the results (download is slighly higher);
The first test -
Download Speed: 11.95
Upload speed: 0.38
Further diagnostics -
Best Effort Test: -provides background information.
|0 Mbps||21 Mbps|
Max Achievable Speed
| Download speedachieved during the test was - 11.95 Mbps|
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 4 Mbps-21 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 17.09 Mbps
2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.
|Upload speed achieved during the test was - 0.38Mbps|
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps
When I tested it before, I had maximum download AND upload possible. I have no idea why it is considerably slower all of a sudden.
your connection rate is 19mb but your profile is 17mb so tour download speed will be less than your profile it is peak time being mid afternoon on a Saturday so you may find your download speed is a bit lower than off peak hence 12mb
If it were to be less, I highly doubt that it would be 6-7mb less than what it should be - moreover, my speed use to be at ~20mb so this is quite ridiculous. Peak times have never affected my line when I was with TalkTalk. so why would that affect it now? Also, I tested my connection at 6am this morning and it was still the same (I don't think that is during peak hours).
Furthermore, it would still not explain why my upload is also considerably lower than expected (my margin up is apparently set to 32.6dB).
It is just quite odd that I started out with 6dB for margin up, and now it is jumped to 32dB.
I understand that the up margin is usually higher than the down margin, but it is 5 times higher.
the higher margin is due to the lower upstream speed if that returned to about 1mb then noise margin will reduce
The real question is why has my up noise margin been increased 5 times higher than what it should be. I already know that the higher the noise margin, the lower the upload will be.
