Slow upload NBN HFC

Level 2
Hi TPG support,

For the last 2 weeks or so, my upload speeds went down from 38 Mbps to around 20 Mbps and last 3 to 4 days, the upload speeds are around 2 Mbps and sometimes even as low as 1 Mbps. I have tested these speeds using a wired connection and also used tpg speed test and well as ookla speedtest. I have restarted the NBN modem as well as the tpg supplied router but with no affect.
This hfc line was previously used to share a foxtel connection with a splitter but foxtel is no longer used so the nbn modem is now directly plugged into the Hfc wall socket.

Can you please help? Many thanks.

You may also perform a reset with your NBN NTD box and the TPG supplied modem/router, before performing the troubleshooting in order to start fresh.

(note: the modem/router will go back to it's default settings once you've done a reset.)
