Re: Upload Speed Limited to 2 MB/s

WiFi in both instances yes - I actually don't own an ethernet adapter for the computer in question! 

 

However, I still don't understand why I would observe a 2MB/s on the NOW TV network and 24MB/s on Eduroam - unless its router hardware related? 


Yes it's hardware related, the hardware in question being the long bit of cable between the Now router and the Openreach cabinet.

Re: Upload Speed Limited to 2 MB/s

@redchiz1 

 

For my job, WFH, I have to connect to several networks, albeit one at a time, over VPN connections, but they are all going out from my work laptop, and going out over my BT router, and via BT as my ISP.

 

So @nick_g could have meant the same thing - but as my posting made clear, I hope, I rather expected that he didn’t.

Line 3. Overhead, without any fuss, the stars were going out…..

Re: Upload Speed Limited to 2 MB/s

So for both networks, I only connected via WiFi from a macbook. 

 

So last week at work (Edu-roam) I ran speedtest.net and got an average of 22Mbps upload from three runs, however I have re-run the test at work today and had an average of 438Mbps!! Maybe I ran the tests during some maintenance, or maybe connected to a further away AP (there has been some limited cabling work done in the building).

 

I will also be more careful reading units in future as the Mbps vs. MB/s  certainly caused me some confusion. 

 

Thanks for your help guys!
