Macbook Pro Upload Speed Faster Than Download

Whenever a device connects to your Wi-Fi network, it competes with other devices for bandwidth (internet speed). A TV streaming Netflix, a laptop downloading, and an Xbox Live gaming session, all require bandwidth, and depending on your service, performing multiple high-bandwidth activities at the same time may result in a slower connection.

Why only download issues? Because the only Comcast-tagged packets are the inboundones: Internet --> you, including those big data packets. When uploading,yes, you get sent ACK packets and such - but they are tiny connection-controlpackets. I imagine WWM weirds out on them too, but you (usually) wouldn'tnotice when doing multi-Mbps speed tests.

At this point, we already know a lot about the new iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max. When it comes to performance, the new devices are a bit faster than their predecessors thanks to the A16 Bionic chip. But what about 5G? Based on comparison tests conducted by SpeedSmart, the new iPhone 14 Pro models can also achieve higher 5G speeds than iPhone 13 Pro.

Cloudflare recently shipped improved upload speeds across our network for clients using HTTP/2. This post describes our journey from troubleshooting an issue to fixing it and delivering faster upload speeds to the global Internet.

We launched in May 2020 to give our users insight into how well their networks perform. The test provides download, upload and latency tests. Soon after release, we received reports from a small number of users that sometimes upload speeds were underreported. Our investigation determined that it seemed to happen with end users that had high upload bandwidth available (several hundreds Mbps class cable modem or fiber service). Our speed tests are performed via browser JavaScript, and most browsers use HTTP/2 by default. We found that HTTP/2 upload speeds were sometimes much slower than HTTP/1.1 (assuming all TLS) when the user had high available upload bandwidth.

Stepping up to uploading a 10MB object over a network which has 200Mbps available bandwidth and 40ms RTT, the result was surprising. Using our production configuration, HTTP/2 upload speed tested at almost half of the same test conditions using HTTP/1.1 (higher is better).

The result may differ depending on your network, but the gap is bigger when the network is fast. On a slow network, like my home cable connection (5Mbps upload and 20ms RTT), HTTP/2 upload speed was almost identical to the performance observed with HTTP/1.1.

To summarise what this means: HTTP/1.1 simply uses a single buffer, so TCP socket buffers do the flow control. However with HTTP/2, the application layer also has receiver flow control and NGINX uses a fixed size buffer for the receiver. This limits upload speed when the current link has a BDP larger than the current request body buffer size. So the bottleneck is HTTP/2 flow control when the buffer size is too tight.

HTTP/2 upload buffer autotuning is now fully deployed in the Cloudflare edge. Customers should now benefit from improved upload performance for all HTTP/2 connections, including speed tests on Autotuning upload buffer size logic works well for most cases, and now HTTP/2 upload is much faster than before! When we think about the performance we usually tend to think about download speed or latency reduction, but faster uploading can also help users working from home when they need a large amount of upload, such as photo/video sharing apps, content creation, video conferencing or self broadcasting.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 is now in the top spot with 147.24 Mbps median download speeds and the Pixel 7 Pro holds the second spot with 137.11 Mbps while the iPhone 14 Pro Max came in third with 133.84 and the Pro logged 130.14 Mbps.

Although most of the services we tested qualify as personal cloud storage, business solutions like Tresorit, Egnyte and Box also made the list. For these services, download speeds are much more important than usual, as businesses are more likely to need to recover data as quickly as possible in case disaster strikes.

Although it doesn\u2019t come out great in this comparison, our favorite cloud storage provider is, closely followed by pCloud and Icedrive.\n"}},"@type":"Question","name":"What Is the Fastest Cloud Storage?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Icedrive is the overall fastest online storage solution, but services like pCloud and Google Drive aren\u2019t far behind.\n","@type":"Question","name":"What Is the Fastest Free Cloud Storage?","acceptedAnswer":"@type":"Answer","text":"Except for Egnyte, the top 10 fastest cloud storage providers offer a free plan, but they vary in how generous they are.

These services each managed a combined upload and download speed of less than 16 and a half minutes, which is roughly within three minutes of the best possible result.

The mean upload time was increased significantly by some of the slower services we tested, resulting in an average of 32 minutes and 35 seconds, way longer than any of the fastest services.

Our results for downloads were a lot more consistent. Nevertheless, eight of the 10 fastest services managed better results than the median download time, which was eight minutes. Egnyte and Koofr were slightly slower.

Since there were no extreme outliers for downloads, the mean download result was a lot lower than it was for uploads, coming in at 9 minutes and 2 seconds, which is a bar all the top 10 manage to clear.

Unlike in the upload results, there are no extreme outliers for download speed. Only pCloud manages to get under seven minutes, with most of the services sitting somewhere between seven and nine minutes on average., SugarSync and Internxt returned mediocre results, running between nine and 11 minutes.

For our data, we used a 5GB folder filled with files of various types, including texts, documents, images, 4K video and audio. We uploaded and downloaded this folder to each service twice, averaging the results.

Traditionally, download speed was much more important than upload speed. After all, most of our online activity was dedicated to browsing and watching content.

Because a typical internet user does far more downloading (streaming and browsing) than uploading (sharing content online), many ISPs have traditionally offered a higher download rate and a lower upload rate. This type of connection is known as an asymmetrical connection.

So, how slow is too slow when it comes to upload speeds? Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer. It depends on the number of devices connected to the internet, what you use it for, and the type of internet.

It could be that your ISP is restricting your WiFi upload speeds or that you have reached your data limit. Perhaps you have signed up for a plan that does not meet your upload speed requirements. Asymmetric connections only allocate about 10% of the entire bandwidth to upload speeds.

Another reason why your internet upload speed is too slow might be viruses and other malware installed on your computer, router, or modem. It is getting increasingly hard to detect malware; spotty internet is just one of the many symptoms.

Wifi on PC - The download/upload speed is 33.45/27.35 Mbps ping being 11ms. My Laptop is a HP Notebook with Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wifi adapter, it works only on the 2.4 GHz frequency band. Wi-fi status atControl Panel> Network and internet> Network Connections says the speed at 72.2 Mbps.

Ethernet on PC - The download/upload speed is 94.78/93.71 Mbps ping being 5ms. Same Laptop as above, Wi-fi status atControl Panel> Network and internet> Network Connections says the speed at 100 Mbps.

LTE Internet (Installed) offers professional installation with no equipment charge (with a new two-year agreement) and no activation fee. See if LTE Internet (Installed) is available in your area. You might also be eligible for Verizon's 4G LTE Advanced, the next-gen network which offers 50% faster peak download speeds.

Content caching speeds up downloading of software distributed by Apple and data that users store in iCloud by saving content that local Mac computers, iOS and iPadOS devices, and Apple TV devices have already downloaded. The saved content is stored in a content cache on a Mac, and is available for other devices to retrieve without going out over the internet.

For example, when the first client on your network downloads a macOS update, the content cache keeps a copy of the update. When the next client on the network connects to the App Store to download the update, the update is copied from the content cache rather than from the App Store.

"i went from eero pro to eero pro 6 and my wifi speeds have essentially consistently doubled from Erro Pro to Erro Pro 6. i have AT&T so trying to figure out if i need to make changes to my modem gateway but i set up my PRO 6 as i had my Eero Pro. average about 350MB my fastest when i had limited devices was 500MB download and upload I have a 1GB connection. 2 of my 3 Erro Pro 6 are wired"

My point is simple: I expected more than an 18% improvement over Wifi-5 (802.11ac) compared to Wifi-6 (802.11ax). In theory, the spec got upwards of 2.3+GB/sec does it not? Furthermore, my Wifi card indicates the connection is 1201/1201 (up/down link speed) [yes thats 1201, not 1200 :shrug:]. So, in theory, latency aside (since we're talking a stream not burst), it should be able to move >650mb/sec, and it does NOT.

Its not about if "100mbs" is faster than it was, etc. Its the fact it can't keep up with the spec. Nor is it able to deliver 1gb (or even close to it) for a direct PEER to PEER connection. (Wifi-6 to another PC connected via Wifi-6 or ethernet for example).
