Slow upload speed

speedtest.net reports an upload speed of 0.19 mpbs.

 

Download speed is 17.02 mbps, though it started out much slower.

 

Signal strength is currently 129.

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.
