Re: Degradation in Upload Speeds



I was wondering if there was anyone on the forum that could possibly help me with this, as tech support seems to give me contradicting answers everytime I speak with them.


For the past 2 weeks now, my internet has been getting HORRIBLE upload speeds between 7:00pm and 10:30pm local time (ET).


I have the Ignite internet gigabit (1000down/30up). When I run speed tests all day long, I will average 200 to 1000 download, and 27-32 upload. Then 7:00 hits... It suddenly becomes below 50 download, and BELOW 1MBPS upload! Which pretty much makes working from home useless as I need a solid 10Mpbs upload to keep my feeds going.


Is there something that could be done on my end to verify where this problem could come from?


I am not the most IT/tech savvy person out there, but I know how to follow directions quite well, and do have basic knowledge. I really need to fix this asap to maintain a reasonable income.


Thank you


EDIT: I forgot to say, I have the Technicolor XB6 modem, and it is running in gateway, not bridged.

Re: Degradation in Upload Speeds

This is happening to me too! Live in London, ON. What's up Rogers?

I have a suspicion that it might actually be considered acceptable by the Rogers standards. I thought the 30mbps was low when I signed up, but I never would have thought that it would end up being KBPS instead.

Wondering if anyone can tell me where to go next. I have had ignite for about 5 months now and everything randomly disconnects of 1 min and then its back. And recently when this happens my speeds go nuts. I have 150 down and 15 up but when I do speeds tests I get 5 to 7 up and 430  down. I have contacted support and just keep getting run around. I have had all the lines in the house and to  the pole replaced. I have been told I need a firmware  update. I have been told it's the distribution  box on my street. I have been told maintenance needs to look at this. I have been told my line is being monitored and it's been a month since I was told that. My nest cameras and security cannot run on 5-7 meg upload that is my main concern. So talking to first line support has gotten me nowhere. How do I escalate this to the next level?
