Very slow NBN

Level 2


I'm on the NBN 90Mbps plan and the speeds I'm getting are only around 20Mpbs, which is even slower than my old TPG ADSL speeds.

Here is the test result from TPG Speed Test ( 17.4Mbps upload, 29.7 Mbps download)

I know 90Mbps are the ideal speeds, but at least give me 80% of it......

Level 5

Tha's an anusual result.

Your Upload is faster than the Download.

Did you run this on Wifi or Ethernet?

What kind of NBN internet do you have and also the router that your're using?

Level 2

Well, It has always been like this. The best speeds I got were the first day of using NBN, around 35Mbps download and 37Mbps upload. All test results were on Wifi with the original TPlink modom from TPG, FTTB Super Fast 90Mbps plan by the way.
