Level 2: Rookie

upload speed seems to have dropped?

Hi there,


I am an ultrafast user who typically gets ~600Mbps down and 45Mbps up. I run a speed test every morning at the same time (6am), and its generally right on the mark.


However, I noticed today that my upload speed has more than halved. Its averaging around 18-20Mbps even though the download is still up around ~600Mbps.


This is using speedtest.net against the Melbourne Telstra speedtest server. The upload speed is not even fluctuating, its as though its being shaped.


Can anyone else confirm if they are having similar issues?

Re: upload speed seems to have dropped?

Hi Kanemari.


Without being in the same location as yourself I can't run a speedtest to check if it's an area issue. I'd suggest running your address through our outage page however https://tel.st/7k4qg9 and seeing if there's maintenance or issues in the area.
