Ok so i use the TP Link WPA-271 powerline adapter (http://www.tp-link.com/lk/products/details/?model=TL-WPA271KIT) and have been for a good while now and for the most part it's been fine, however it is currently very slow with it's upload speeds, and the download speeds aren't too great either. (Used to be 10-14MB)

 

I noticed this all when running my KNOWHOW cloud back up program... it shows the upload speeds in the corner and it always hovers between 50KB/s to 100KB/s tops! It's not much better via ethernet.

 

I am on Sky Broadband

 

Here's the results i just got from a network speedtest;

Any ideas why this would be and what i could to sort this issue? i've even tested it via ethernet with the homeplug and it's just as poor. It never used to be this slow..

I get the practically the same sort of speeds with the powerline adapters switched off too and connecting via just the sky router. Thinking it's my ISP...

I contacted sky yesterday and got a reply today, i can confirm it's my ISP that's the issue after reading this..

 

"We constantly monitor your line to make sure it has been set to support the fastest speed possible whilst maintaining a stable connection."

Line connection testing completed on 01/03/2014, resulting in the following settings:

Download speed setting
Your connection has been set to a download speed of up to 6.1Mbps .

Upload speed setting
Your connection has been set to an upload speed of up to 0.8Mbps .

These line settings make sure that your line maintains a stable connection."

Find this ridiculous as i was getting speeds of up to 14MBps with my previous ISP talktalk and that was using the same line! Hopefully it's a temporary issue..
