Upload speed has halved after 10th Feb - What happened on that date?

chrisbm
On our wavelength

My two home servers run three staggered speedtests each every night - around 3am / 4am / 5am. They run so they don't happen at the same time, obviously.

Looking over recent results, I can see that my usual 100mbps upload speed has broadly halved since 10th feb. Not just a one-off, but halved across the board, every day, every speedtest, on separate machines. Both ethernet-wired so no wifi flucuations involved.

What happened on 10th Feb to cause this? Nothing in my network has changed in this period.

Is there a street level fault ?.. call 0800 561 0061 to find out.

Is there an Upstream connection modulation rate or hard error issue ?

Has the configuration of the Hub unexpectedly changed to a lower Upstream Max Traffic Rate ?

nothing's changed as far as i can see. my max upload speed is still capped at 110000274 bps

my logs are full of warnings and notices, but nothing new there. it literally always shows those:

Looks ok to me, other than the timeouts.

indeed. it's clear from the data that something suddenly changed across the board on 10th Feb and has stayed that way ever since

nothing in my network changed, and the download speed is unaffected, which suggests to me it's someting external

Something has changed, problems are solved with facts not assumptions.

If you have a Hub 5, are you affected by the recent firmware LG-RDK_7.6.15-2306.5 that has affected the 2.5Gb/s port ?   https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Tech-Chatter/Hub-5-Firmware-Upgrade/td-p/5480079


With the VM Hub in Router mode use the link below to confirm the service speed to / from the Hub:
https://www.samknows.com/realspeed/
Once the test begins click on: Run full test to see all the stats.
It only take a short time and will answer the question of is this a VM service speed issue.

Ah now that could be interesting, I had no idea there was an update.

I run my hub 5 in modem mode and have an orbi router and mesh connected to the 2.5G port on the hub.

The two affected machines are wired, as I mentioned. One directly into the orbi router and the other also to the orbi router but via a switch.

The macbook I'm typing this on right now reaches close to 100mbps upload when testing, and that's on wifi to the orbi router.

So it seems to be only the cabled machines having the issue, which makes sense with some of the comments in that thread. How to fix it though? I have no idea.

If the Macbook reaches close to 100 on Wi-Fi, the network link from the Hub 5 to the Orbi also reaches close to 100 Mb/s of Upstream which is as expected.

The route from the Orbi via the Switch to the servers is the segment that only reaches 50 Mb/s on Upstream.
