My UPLOAD, using the COX Speedtest, has dropped in half over the last week
I'm hardwired using Win10. I've reset the modem a few times by the power cord. I run the speedtest to my local OC county and other areas. I'm told I have the Premier with 200MBps/10Mbps upload. I've noticed that over the past week my upload speed has dropped from 10.7+ to around 5.5 or lower. I've run the test to various parts of the country and notice higher Uploads to far away places like Nova and New England than to my local OC area. This was done on 10/21/2019 at around 9:30am.
OC- 7/3 ping/jitter 227.2down/5.5up
Las Vegas, 232mi 14/49, 58.4/5.6up
Nova, 2269mi, 76/4, 25.7/11.1up
New England, 2568mi, 74/3, 26.1/11.0up
Using PingPlotter, I get the following when I go to Cox.com(22.214.171.124), I show hop 6 (126.96.36.199) has a 45% Packet loss where all the other 7 have 0%. Note: I could not find a way to clipboard insert or the insert a file into this message...asking for a URL??
Anyway, My question is what happened to my local area Upload speed to drop, and why would going to New England produce a higher number for Upload.
Since I'm not a gamer, so I don't think I'm bothered by the lower Upload as long as my Download stays around 220-240Mbps....which it has for a reasonably long time. I've always wondered why when users post their Cox internet speed times that I never see where and how far away the ISP that they are testing and getting poor results. Just asking.....
