Re: Slow upload speed

Speedtest.net is not reliable for satellite and is not accepted by Hughesnet.  You should create a free account at Testmy.net and run speed tests there.

Speedtest is never correct for my upload speeds.  Even when I have upload speeds of around 3Mbps, verified by both testmy.net and networx, Speetest will show something like 0.69Mbps.   The other problem I find with Speedtest is that it can use a ton of data for each test, especially when your speed is high.  I like using testmy.net, not only for its accuracy, but for the ability to choose the test size, which is 25MB and 4MB for download and upload, repsectively.
