900mb FTTP capped at 50mb upload

Go to solution

So as the subject says I recently moved to the 900 service and the first few days it was 110 pretty much every time I checked. I was having issues with the hybrid connect so I did a factory reset of the hub and it dropped to 50. I was then sent a new hub and that's also stuck at 50 up

I tried calling BT but got the "we don't guarantee upload speeds" I appreciate that but when you say it will be 110 in an email that says how fast will it be and then simply by resetting a router it looses 60mb something is clearly wrong somewhere.  

The level of customer service at BT amazes me, keep you on hold for 30 plus minutes then shut you down with statements like we don't guarantee upload speeds despite a quick read of this forum making it clear its not about the guarantee the smart hub is clearly not performing as it should.

I was even asked where my router was placed! how is that relevant to a problem with the upload speed oh and can I send you a speed test link so I can get an idea of the speeds on the device your using....  Its not a wifi issue and the speed my phone gets isnt the issue either.  

is the current firmware v0.27.07.07281-BT ? Or should I wait to see if the hub updates?

Hi @ShavedApe,

Thank you for posting. I'm sorry if you're not getting the full speed on the upload side of your connection. If you send me your details, I'll be able to take a look at this for you.

I have sent you a private message with instructions on how to contact the team.  You can access your messages via the envelope icon at the top right of the screen, or click on this link, Private messages

I did use the search but as you said there is a very large thread. So large getting an answer might take a long time. Thanks for you input though.

The issue is now fixed I contacted BT again and got a different advisor who was able to help which makes it yet more clear how poor the customer service at BT can be.

I just called the normal customer service number but its definitely luck of the draw when it comes to how helpful they might be.
