I am on 2Degree's fiber plan, previously signed up under SNAP, so I've been using their fiber for awhile now.
I live in the fringe of Auckland Central, Eden Terrace to be exact.

 

Only just recently I've started doing some game hosting, game streaming and video uploading to Youtube. This is when I noticed the abnormal upload speed I have.
At first I didn't give much thought and just upgraded my 200/20 plan to the 200/200 plan.

 

 

 

The new plan kicked in, and I noticed nothing changed (except the bill undecided).
This is when I started doing some test and noticed my upload speed wasn't even anywhere close to the capability of my previous 200/20 plan.

 

Now thinking back, the upload speed is the same throughout life time of my fiber existent, so it's not something new.

 

 

Is this normal for the fiber? I know speed can vary based on address, but this upload speed is far from the capability of my current 200/200 plan.

Not normal at all. See my sig for my 200/200 speeds on BigPipe. You need to talk to 2D

No that doesn't look normal.  Mine gets pretty close for both download and upload. I think there are settings on the fritzbox (assuming that's what you're using) that can limit these, so maybe check that.  Also ensure nothing else is saturating your link (torrents, etc)

I'm really surprised you could get 172Mbps down with such a slow upload with TCP. Are you sure it's just not speedtest.net playing up? Do you have another device to test on?

Thank you all for the replys.

 

 

 

 

Turned out it was the fritzbox setting...
I've had the modem since before fiber was available in my area.

 

So I've been using self-handicapped speed for over a year yell

What was the setting and what did you change it too?

Under Internet -> Account Information -> Internet Connection tab scroll to bottom and there are connection settings with upstream\downstream limits.
