  1. Download speed slower than upload speed


    My Windows 10 desktop has slower download speeds 10Mbps compared to upload speeds 30Mbps. On other devices connecting to the same router, I can get download speeds of 90+MBps on our 100/40 plan.


    This is true whether I connect with ethernet or wifi.

    I have changed the Windows update settings that limit how much bandwidth is used for downloading updates.

    I have changed the NetworkThrottlingIndex registry setting to ffffff.


    Is there some other Windows setting I can find and change, to improve this?


    Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Slow Download Speed

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft forums.

    • I would suggest you to test the speed using any of the speed test website or app to confirm the upload and download speed.
    • I also suggest you to reset the wireless router to check if that helps.
    • You may plug in the Ethernet cable if available and check the speed.


    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to write to us for any other assistance with Windows, we’ll be glad to assist you

    Download speed slower than upload speed

    Download speed is much slower than the Upload Speed, using Windows 10 Home

    Odd that no one seems to have noticed that you are experiencing the exact opposite of what you should be.

    In other words, upload speed is ALWAYS slower than download.

    For example, I have a fairly slow Internet Connection compared to yours yet my Download Speed is blindingly fast compared to the upload speed:

    CenturyLink's free on-line speed test is reasonably accurate and a good way to judge your server's performance. Whether you use their service or another. Or so I have found over the years, anyway. You can find it HERE

    So I STILL say you should call your ISP and ask them why.

    Incidentally I am using Windows 10 also.
