Slow upload speed despite 200Mbps fiber connection

jmcguire525jmcguire525 Members, Plex Pass Posts: 90 Plex Pass

I'm having streaming issues and have tried both a warden and iocage jail. The advertised upload speed for my connection is 200Mbps and I regularly get 120-130Mpbs when pinging outside the ISP area but Plex is only uploading at ~40Mbps (tested with a 52Mbps bitrate video and also got the same results with three 18Mbps bitrate videos at once).

I'm running a ubiquiti USG Pro router with a PPPoE connection, hardware offload is enabled, DPI and smart queues are turned off. I'm a trying to eliminate the possible causes, any tips would help.

    well... there's a whole lot of network service providers on the way to that upload. just consider how it is that your downloads are usually no longer limited by your download bandwidth but the bandwidth provided by the server from where you download it.

    basically it's the same here... some system/party in your communication chain is not capable to keep up with your own 200 Mbit/s.

    Except I'm able to run 8 simultaneous HDTV streams with a steady 75Mbps upload throughput without issue through GetChannels DVR, same machine, same remote location... and I probably could have done more but I ran out of devices to test with
