We've recently moved house to somewhere a bit more rural, and I'm going through an adjustment period of going from 55Mbps/15Mbps download/upload, to something in the region of 18Mbps/1Mbps.
The phone & Infinity 1 service was only connected 3 days ago, and I appreciate that it takes around 10 days or so for the broadband to settle.
I can get used to the drop in download speed, as 20Mbps is still good enough for what we need, but it's the 1Mbps upload which is proving to be a pain, as I do work from home quite a lot.
To be fair to BT, both d/l and u/l speeds are currently within the ranges they quoted, and alternatives such as satellite or our local wireless provider (W3Z) still only offer a 1Mbps upload.
I'm just wondering if there's anything I can do to improve the upload speed, or if this is a technical limitation due to distance from cabinet, exchange, etc...?
I've attached some test readings I took from the BT speed tester.
I haven't tried going directly to the test socket yet. Will give it a go later.
I've already asked if I can get one of the new BT Smart Hubs, and I believe they use a Broadcom chipset.
I might have to look into a mobile wifi solution to augment my BT service, for when I'm working from home and need a better upload speed.
