Is anyone else experiencing slow upload speeds on Fibre-X?  I'm on the max plan and usually get 300-400Mbps down and 100Mbps up however the upload speeds are now down around the 1Mbps range.  Download speeds are still good.  I've been on Fibre-X since launch and I've only notice the poor upload speed in the last week.

 

I tested over ethernet to local vodafone server and restarted all devices.

 

 

 

Keen to hear if this is impacting anyone else.

Enable CTF in the router options. This router isn’t really suited well for Gigabit.

Thanks, it's already enabled.  The router has been rock solid with good speeds for a long time.

I managed to resolve this by unplugging the vodafone supplied cable modem and leaving it unplugged for 5 mins.  Speeds are back to normal now.

 

Interestingly reboots didn't work but a 5 min power down did.  I'm not sure why that is?

Is your cable modem in a closed place where it gets no ventilation or clogged with dust? perhaps the chips got too hot?

I'm also having major speed issues in Miramar - to the extent that Netflix is fuzzy and slow.

 

 

 

I have the new Vodafone supplied Router ( with LAN Cable to my TV) and Unlimited FibreX Max package.

 

 

 

Speeds had been very fast until last week sometime, now speeds  around 180/1 - from 500/100 2 months ago.

 

 

 

Will unplug everything for a while and see what happens.

We've been having speed issues with FibreX max (also based in Miramar). Speedtests are decent (400Mbps~), but real world usage really suffers (downloads can't get above 9MB/s per device, oddly). I also have an Edgerouter X and was using it instead of the UltraHub, but that produced weird buffer bloat-like issues (seriously high latency unless the WAN connection was saturated). When using the Edgerouter, download speeds were what I expected (i.e. 60MB/s+) at most times though.

 

As latency trumps speed, I have begrudgingly switched back to the UltraHub. I am glad that I'm not the only one with issues out here though.
