max upload speed for XL is 0.75 Mbps.  If the upstream is busy, then it suffers.  But your upstream is reasonable.


That said, if you're in an upgraded area, your upstream maximum is 2 Mbps.


This can be discovered if you post your FULL modem stats which tells us what you are provisioned for.  As a matter of form, please also post your event log in case there's evidence of a problem.


Use copy and paste to put the stats on your next post rather than using an image.
