UPload is much faster than DOWNload

Scout

Hello All,

 

I am new to 3. 

I recently purchased a 3 broadband sim to test the signal in my area. 

 

I can get 15 M/bit UPload 

BUT 

only 0.3 (yes, ZERO POINT THREE) M/bit DOWNload 

 

Anyone encounter this ? 

 

Is it possible that I have a PHONE sim in a LTE modem/router ? 

I asked specifically in the store for a broadband sim, I logged into my3.ie and my number is listed as "mobile broadband" 

 

Anyone able to help ?

Many thanks

Tom

That is normal, as many people are doing the same there are so many users per mast, everyone is downloading much more than uploading, that creates so much contention, I ran a speedtest just now, download is 3.29 mbps and upload 11.66 mbps

Yeah same on mine. More demand on the download = slower download

You could try to move your router to a better location to see if that improves your speed
