I'm using optus 4G mobile internet, noticed the upload speed is very slow. Just did a speed test, the download is about 10Mb and upload is only 0.1Mb, is that normal?
The speeds can vary dramatically due to location or activity on the local tower however your upload speed does seem awfully slow. If this is a mobile broadband device you might want to restart the device and move it around to where it can get the best signal. I haven't done a speed test myself for some time but the image below shows what I am getting tonight.
Edit: I should have also said that it might pay check your location on network status map as there could be issues with the local towers. If you click the link below and then click on the outages tab normally found on the far right side you should be able to view the status by entering your postcode.
I have tried everything, full reception bars. amazing download speed and just dismal upload speed.
I have done the same test on my phone, tablet this is the best one I could get and that was bridging 2 hotspots from both tablet and phone on my pc lol. I'm guessing it has to be tower related? on both tablet and phone download speed is the same upload speed much worse at 0.1 and 0.15 respectively. Starts off at .8mbs ish.
Does anyone know what can be done to improve this? online gaming is a real bugger right now.
