Added Homeworks 300 - upload slowed down!

So, I had Vivid 200 Gamer, this gave me 200/20, or, according to the modem config, 220m down, 23m up.

I added Homeworks 300. This increased my download to 330m, yay!

But it *decreased* my upload to 21m.

Speedtests now give me about 18.8m up, as opposed to 21.3m up.

 

Surely this isn't right?!

Both packages come with up to 20 upload, anything above that was a bonus.

try testing at various times during the day. Would be interested in seeing other feedback on VIVID 300 before subscribing. I'm happy on VIVID Gamer 200.

Re: Added Homeworks 300 - upload slowed down!

also as headline speeds increase, service to the end user PC is more susceptible to speed reductions depending on internal distribution - e.g. ethernet to the hub would score 100, Powerline HomePlugAV2 maybe 75 depending on kit and interference, and Wifi around 50 -- key is to have ac-enabled devices running on a clean 5 Ghz channel.
