SLOW Upload speed (Dec. 14, 2016)

Noticed all internet upload traffic is DEAD SLOW.  Download speed is on-par with what I'm paying for, but the

upload speed is showing around 1 - 3 kbps.  Most of the time, it fails to upload anything. 

What is going on?  I'm on a Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.  Never had any trouble until this morning.

    Yes, that was resolved.  This has to do with upload speed being extremely slow, but download speed is terrific.

    Just checked again.  0.36 Mbps.  That's crazy slow!  Does Cox ever read this forum?

    Are you testing direct to the modem? Also, what model modem and router do you have?

    Sometimes, but it's not a direct support forum. It is for users to help other users. If you want direct support, call them or Twitter at @CoxHelp, visit us on Facebook, or at

    How was it resolved? What changed?
