My upload has always been kinda . . . crappy. Any ideas/input?

Recommended Posts

Ok, i got Comcast in TUCSON AZ (i think this affects it) of 6000/384. I dug the trench to put it in myself, so i am on my own line. It is a new cable (like 3 months old), so its not the cable quality. Also the signal in my house is 13.8 dB (is dB the right unit?)

Oh and more reason that it is something in the tucson area, is that 4 other friends who have the same comcast package (they live a good distance away from me too, one person is like 10 miles away) ALL get like the same upload. Mine is actually slightly better, and so is my dl speed. I have tested many differtent time, many different days, on many servers, even on speakesay servers and they are all nearly identical.

I would like all the information why this is, if there is anything i can do about it, or if there is a way to get comcast to upgrade (sonds ridiculous but i am asking anyway). i dont think verizon is in tucson, but i know quest and cox are. and and tucson is a city of close to 800,000 population. Almost everyone i know in tucson has somesort of broadband, and maybe that affects it.

Sorry for my long rant, all the information you guys can give me, or any suggestions or anything, tell me. thanks
