Uploading anything slows the entire connection down for all


[link to this post]
 
If I upload a video to Youtube, files, photos to backup to Google Photos or music etc the internet connection on all other devices becomes unworkably slow until the upload finishes. Not just a bit slower but stupidly slow. It is only me using the connection of a few devices. I haven't activated an QoS rules that I know of.

I other ADSL connections I've had can cope with a household of devices doing multiple things at the same time. I struggle with just one.

Saturating the upload can cause download and its ACK traffic to be delayed and slow down downloads.

Different router hardware copes with this in different ways, the usual solution is to implement some QoS at the router, or limit the upload application to only use 80 to 90% of the upload capacity.

My connection speed is good it being Saturday...
For connection to BBC iPlayer and YouTube I do find the Upstream speed is critical and needs to be at Maximum Upstream 1272 (Kbps) if it drops to say 600 (Kbps), the connection will crawl still with the Downstream 11623 (Kbps). crazy
