Upload speed consistently higher than download speed?

I have a UML290 in a MBR100 with a Wilson Yagi and I consistently get these higher upload speeds. What is causing this and how can I get the downloads to at least match the uploads. Typical 6mbs down, 10mbs up?

Don't know what is causing your situation, but I think this might help. Go to »dslreports.com , click on tools, scroll down to DRTCP, download DRTCP to your desktop, reboot computer.
Go back to dslreports/tools, and scroll down to tweak test.Run the tweak test and then follow instructions. You must have JAVA installed in order to run test. Hope this helps.

I also have a UML290 and have had an MBR95 and now a MBR1200B with a yagi and have seen a similar ratio recently. 2 things:
1) Why does it matter as long as your speeds are as advertised?

2) May want to look at moving from a series 1 to a series 2 cradlepoint as they admitted and fixed a cap of 16mb down on the series 2 firmware. I sometimes hit 20 down now and I'm 6 miles from the tower. I would shy away from the 95 unfortunately, it was flaky and the 1200B has been great. Of course increased model = increased price.

what size files are you testing with? Have you tried 25MB or higher file sizes from Testmy.net and seen a consistent lower download than upload?

I get around 35Mbps down and 10Mbps up.. Then again I am using HomeFusion.

I have a MBR1000 also, but I am using a USB 551L. It will hit over the supposed fixed cap of 16mb all the time. I don't know if they removed the cap with the last and final firmware update or not. But I don't have those issues with mine.
