How to get higher uplod speed adsl

Hi. So I’m on adsl 2+ with dodo in Australia. I just started a new job and they require me to have an upload speed of at least 1mb and I am ALMOST! Getting there like I’m around 0.8-0.9 and I really really need to just get it to the one. I don’t even care if it’s a spoofing thing to make it appear to online speed tests that I’m getting better upload. I just need help and suggestions!!!! Please!

Re: higher upload speed

In reply to: How to get higher uplod speed adsl

Generally, with ADSL, speeds are dependent on the plan. The more you pay, the faster. Contact your ISP to discuss the options.

Dodo adsl

In reply to: Re: higher upload speed

Yeah I rang dodo. And they said they don’t offer and can’t offer higher speeds.

And my issue is I don’t actually need the faster speeds like, it works fine. But I need to be able to trick online speed tests to say I’m getting higher upload.

I’ll try that

In reply to: What an odd job.

So. The job is from at home and it’s just there rules that we have to have at least 1mb upload. I just need to fake the online speed tests thinking that I have that 1mb upload, so that when they test it will say that.

But I will try that link and those steps to see if that gives me any improvement.

Completely forgot a trick.

Go to a WiFi hotspot and do the testing there. Then go home and do what you must there.

ADSL Speed Limitations

In reply to: How to get higher uplod speed adsl

ADSL speeds have limitations for uploading of 1 Mbps. Usually for an Internet download speed of 6 MB of data per second, 0.8 Mbps. is the maximum upload speed. With a Wifi connection, the actual speeds can be less by a small margin. If your plan supports an upload speed of 1 Mbps., you can try using a wired connection or even Powerline to get the full upload speed.

Link to Powerline information:

However, you should contact your workplace to see if your current upload speed is OK with them before making any setup changes.
