    Upload speed is greater than Download speed


    Hey guys,

    I have 10Mbps internet connection through Fibre. So, If upload speed is greater than Download speed is it okay or I should contact network provider to fix parameters ?



    Regards.

    I'd check it with a different speedtest, I've had some bizarre results using Ookla of late with impossible upload speeds.

    My upload was faster than download with my last ISP. Not uncommon especially with fibre I think.

    I don't know what to expect in Pakistan.

    I've had some weird upload results using the Speedtest app. Using speedtest.net gives more consistent results.

    Hi there
    There's no "Rule" that upload should be slower than download on Fibre cable -- all things being equal it could be faster since you could on your computer optimize the data transfer, have decent hardware compression etc etc. For upload as well you are uploading generally data to specific servers e.g cloud accounts etc.

    On download data could be coming from a variety of places, slow websites, overloaded servers etc etc.

    However that said in general the ISP handles the traffic so probably uploads will still typically be slower than downloads.

    On non Fibre type connections (old ADSL / copper wire type connections) the exchange had a physical limit and upload also deliberately made slowish so you couldn't use your home computer as a "public server" - well you could but the response time would have been hideous if more than 2 users on it !!!!!!. The old copper wire systems also have a much lower data throughput potential so the available data volume tends to get rationed between users - so in any case slow throughput. The technology of that system also has a much higher data throughput in one direction (download) than the other (upload) typically 10 - 30 times slower on upload.

    I'd just look at the contract and ensure you get the average speed for which you are paying. If you aren't sure contact the ISP -- in the EU / EEA at least the ISP will have to give you that data so you know exactly what you are being billed for.

    Cheers

    who's your ISP provider, jk22?

    I get almost 90Mbps download speed & 11Mbps upload speed with Spectrum cable internet and using an ethernet/LAN connection on one of my PCs - just recently tested my connection with Speedtest a while ago

    10Mbps with Fibre? Something wrong with that, mate. Check with your ISP, I think.

    Try fast.com to test - it's a Netflix thingy.
