Upload Speeds Reduced

Rate this question

Question

KgCobra

I have a dedicated IP (with port opened) for a PLEX server setup with IPTV (hence VPN needed).  I have recently noticed that the download speeds have increased significantly (TY), but at the same time the upload speed appears to have been capped at 20mbps.  I have 1GB internet with Xfinity and an upload stream of 40mbps without VPN.  Before I made a ticket I thought I would put this out here to see if there was an answer or solution.

Regards.

speedtest-cli can have a few issues with accurate reporting. I'd recommend testing with iperf3 to a few decent servers (https://iperf.fr/iperf-servers.php and https://iperf.cc/ list quite a few servers and you can always run your own on a VPS or in the cloud). I usually do upload and download tests over 30 seconds to get some representative figures.

https://software.es.net/iperf/ for Windows binaries, the main Linux repos have iperf3 as a package. (don't use iperf2, aka "iperf").

As I'm in Europe I tend to use Bouygues Telecom (France), Online.net and Serverius plus my own private servers for a baseline.

Something like

iperf3 -c server.address.xyz -p 5205 -t 30 -P 5

Will do a five-threaded upload test for 30 seconds to test server port 5205 and display results. To do a download test, add -R (hyphen R). Invoking "iperf3" without arguments will show all the available options, not all of which may be applicable to your OS.

 

I have noticed a slowdown in speeds to UK servers recently, whether that's due to contention, routing or something else I'm not sure. I have symmetric gigabit fibre so I tend to notice speed loss earlier than most 🙂

Appreciate the suggestion and feedback. I was hoping for more of yah or nah answer from staff if they are actually capping upload speeds.  I’ll give this a go and see what results I get.

Thanks.

If you are in france, try speedtest with Wingo (Zurich, Switzerland) or any other 100+Gb server.

	speedtest-cli --share --server 12743
	

 

make sure you get latest speedtest-cli, on linux you can install it with pip, example for Ubuntu 20.04:

	sudo -H pip3 install speedtest-cli
