Re: Download and upload speed

Hardwired to pc or laptop?

Using speedtest.net?

To local ATT server, within 100 miles?

With no other device or activity in use?


If no Uverse IPTV option available, with 1T data cap is ADSL2+, expect upload to be around 10% of download or 6/.6. 


Should be higher than the next lower tier of internet 3. Thus if receiving 4 to 7 on download and around .5 or higher on upload you are within acceptable range. 


May want to view ATT Speed Tiers for breakpoints.


If Uverse IPTV is available, then VDSL will higher upload would expect 1.5 to 2 as possible.
