so I'm getting 13Mbs down and .6Mbs up is there any way I can increase my upload speed? I don't get why it would be so slow but it's been like that since we got internet

Are you with CenturyLink? I think we're on the same plan. I'm paying for 25mb/s down, 5mb/s up, and get 12down, .47up. Every time we (or, I, since I live with my grandparents...) ask them to fix it, they just give us a new router. We have four now. It's like a duping bug, in real life ._.


I really wish that we'd just make organic hardware already, that grows and adapts to the demands it needs to meet. That way, grannies' computers can be floppy sacks of organicness and the 12 year old Minecrafters will look like the guys that only do bicep curls, and the nerdy programmers will finally have justice, with their body-builder rigs that skipped leg day.

Dude. EXACT same situation here. I've asked to pay their termination fee and everything. I've tried other routers (going up to a buddy's enterprise grade router), with very minimal improvement. They don't help at all over calls or anything, and really don't do much in person either. CenturyLink is simply a poor service, and they convinced my grandparents to stick with a SIX YEAR contract, and they don't even provide 1/3 of what they promise. VPN's don't help either.

since we seem to be having the same issues I must ask is youtube giving you issues when trying to watch videos? like buffering ever 30sec for 10minutes at a time even at 360p?

I was having this issue at first. Go into your router settings and disable QoS, that fixed it for me, as well as gave me an upload speed. When speedtesting before doing this, I was getting .02mb/s upload. It also slightly improved download speeds.

This is weird. I also want to stream  :huh:

I used to make videos much more frequently, however, stopped due to having to move three times this year, and now not having much privacy at all.

I must ask, did you also use to play RuneScape religiously, switch to WoW, and then become uninterested in MMO's while still begrudgingly trying them out on and off, and sticking to generic FPS games?

well when I was 10 I played RuneScape like my life depended on it lol never really got into WoW lol I play DayZ if you call that an MMO but thats pretty much it mostly FPS games even if I do suck at them lol

 

 

luckily though I think we are only in a 1 or 2 year contract so once I can find a job I can pay the cancelation fees for the internet atleast and get us better internet

We're fairly similar. I just graduated, have plenty of money from working while in school, but they won't let me pay the termination fee, meaning I'm stuck without being able to stream or make YouTube videos. Which, I would love to do. It's something I've been told is VERY enjoyable, and I really enjoy it myself, so being handicapped like this is...irritating, to say the least. One of the dogs also broke my Canon T3i recently, and I had planned on using it to make tech review videos (very good chance of getting a job at a retailer currently), so that's out of the picture for a short while, unless I plan on dropping $900 on a new camera setup.

Yeah there are no jobs in my area and since I don't have a car I am stuck to looking for jobs with in a 3 mile radius I've been doing my videos of my pc (posted in the thread linked in my sig) with an old Logitech webcam and my LG motion cell phone camera till I can get the money even with my crappy cameras I think I'mma do a small review on the my video card that I have coming in soon

Sounds like ADSL to me. You will never get above something like 1.2Mbps, due to the spec, and that's a theoretical maximum.

It's normal, up speeds are always much slower unless your plan specifically advertized fast up speeds and even then the limit isn't much higher. Sorry, there are no "cheap tricks" to get more bandwidth.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Dude, I've got a 3.95Mb/s down and 0.85Mb/s up. I can still watch 720p videos with no buffering stops. I'd even have a crack at 1080p but, my resolution is only like 1280x1024 :D

Sorry but upload speeds are usually crap. You can try the normal things like using wired instead of wireless but other than that the only thing left is upgrade your plan.

There are two main reasons for getting low upload speed.

1.Network connection is bad

2.You have a firewall program that is blocking you

If you have slow upload speed,Try to keep the the following instructions

1.Use a Wired Connection

2.Eliminate Malware

3.Clear Your Temp Files

4.Update DNS Settings

5.Check Your Hardware

6.Update Device Drivers

7.Add a Repeater or Extender

8.Change Your Internet Service Provider

When i had the same problem,i followed the same ways.I am sure,it's very useful to increase your upload speed.Then you can check your new internet upload speed using ScanmySpeed.com

The only way to really get proper speeds these days is to be on fiber from a company that isn't evil, get a business plan, or start your own ISP

Best option is too move your connection to an business line. Home users dont need upload as much as business's. Think about, they have servers an shit that need to upload a bucket tonne. Your home computer aint doing that but just downloading torrents. So Upload isnt what your home bundle gives you.
