How to spend 30 seconds to maximise your NBN speed?

Are you getting slower NBN speeds than you expected? It could be a 30 second fix.

We moved from one internet service provider who was offering 12MBps plan to one that was providing 50MBps for the same price but for some reason while the download speed improved significantly, the upload speed stayed around 1Mbps. Surely switching to a faster provider should also result in a faster upload speed right?

When logging into the modem settings (eg  go to your internet browser and type in or  If you get a login screen, login with the default admin login and admin password), there is a section called bandwidth control. In our case the upload speed was set at 970kbps! Unticking the bandwidth control and then running the speed test resulted in the upload speed changing to 20Mbps! If you haven't gotten on to check this, you might want to do this now!
