Upload Speed

I am enrolled in Western Governors University and I have to take objective exams online. They require me to do a speed test through and when I perform the test the majority of the time i get no upload speed or its not even 1 mbps. Can someone please tell me what I need to do to fix this issue, I got hughes net because I was told it was good but at this point im questioning myself on why I even got it.

Re: Upload Speed



Speedtest doesn't seem to like HughesNet very much, though I have no idea what the problem is.  It rarely works for me, especially with the upload speed.  Perhaps someone else or one of the reps might have a suggestion.


Might they accept speed tests performed at   


Is there a minimum upload speed requirement?  The reason I ask is that HughesNet speeds are taking a hit, overall, due to a tremendous increase in traffic due to so many people being at home.  Though upload speed normally tends to be around 1-3Mbps for most, it's dropped for many.
