Throttled upload cellular speed

Hi guys,


Weird situation: cellular connection very strong but clearly throttled upload.


tested extensively, 200-300mbps download on 4gx consistently in Newmarket. 0.6-0.8mbps upload.


tested across multiple devices, all on Telstra, some android and a couple of iOS. So yeah - what gives? Where can I find info on that? Why is it happening? And since when does Telstra throttle mobile upload speeds?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help
