Re: [Cable] Connection grinds to a halt when uploading...

Please read the post before responding. This occurs even when the upload speed is capped at 10KB/s. It is not due to the upstream becoming saturated and affecting the download speeds.

As an example, I can be downloading a file at 1MB/s, and if I unpause my Dropbox sync, the file download speed slowly drops to ~20KB/s. This happens even if I have Dropbox upload limited to

I don't know what is wrong but it sounds like there is something seriously wrong with your connection beyond how bad cable (and ADSL2+) usually is.

Looks like I will have to call in to have this looked at. It's impossible to use the internet with anything uploading relatively large files (file sync, P2P, cloud backup...)
I know cable is pretty bad, but there is no way it is normally *this* bad.

If any TSI staff can give me some insight in the morning, I would appreciate it.
