Re: [Speed] Very Slow Upload Speeds - Comcast Bay Area
said by gaqua:also are you sure dropbox or assciated programs aren't keeping something running in the background? (which could eat a good deal of your US bandwidth)
...but I've only noticed it since I've started trying to use dropbox and upload large files to it from home. However, I've verified it on multiple programs, using multiple browsers, and during multiple times of day.

Yeah, I first noticed it on my desktop, which is the only place I run dropbox. Here's where I've tested it:
1. Desktop, Ethernet to Router, router to modem. Noticed in dropbox, verified with speedtest.
2. Laptop (Macbook), WiFi N to router, router to modem. Verified with speedtest.
3. iPhone 5, WiFi N to router, router to modem. Verified with speedtest.
4. Tablet (Android), WiFi N to router, router to modem. Verified with speedtest.
I've verified this while the other systems are shut down, for example, when #1 is turned off, the rest of the systems are still slow.
tshirt: yes, I have been manually using Bay Area servers in Speedtest app.
BTW, Concast upload speed at my location in Fremont, CA seems to be back to normal today. No idea what was going on, and no updates from Comcast either.
