Hi @Lony77,

Welcome to the community!

There are different cause of Transfer/Speed Issue that you may experience.

  1. Sync Speed Issue, this speed issue is caused by a line fault on TPG (If you're with ADSL2+ or TPG-FTTB) or NBN's network (If you're with NBN service). Affecting all device(s) LAN/Wireless connected to the modem/router this may require a real-time test and investigation by our Technicians and Engineers.
  2. Wireless Transfer Rate Issue, this issue only affects the device(s) connected via Wi-Fi which can easily be fix by doing adjustment to the modem/router's settings.
  3. Speed/Transfer Issues, this issue is caused by possible loose modem/router connection setup. This can be fixed by re-seating Ethernet cable if the device(s) is connected via LAN, re-seating the modem/router to the wall socket or changing the phone cable used from modem/router to the socket.

    Note: You will need to test multiple speed test when you change Ethernet,Phone Cable to identify the caused of speed issue.
  4. Speed Degradation caused by ongoing outage in your area.

In the event that you experience dropouts via Wireless/Wi-Fi connection we did an article that you may find helpful see links below.

Hi Team!


I am on FTTB 100/20 service but the upload speed has been terrible today, just done a speed check again after a router reboot and its the same, download ok at about 93mb, but upload of only about 1mb!


Tried the TPG tech support chat but said everyone was busy.  Hoping a tech support team member can jump in on this for me?

Level 2
I am sick of continually slow NBN speeds with Tpg. I an getting about 4mbps and less than 1mbps upload speed. I feel like I am not getting anything like what I am paying for. I have to resort to my mobile data half the time
