Speedtest.com upload limited to 1 megabit.

When doing a speedtest on speedtest.com the upload maxes out at 1.1 megabit while download varies from 18 to 50 down. Any other speedtest site and even the speedtest app doesn’t have the issue and my upload will vary between 2 - 5 megabits like it should. I’m kinda wondering if an ad or something is causing the video extender to kick in and throttle the upload. I’m on the business 35 plan. It’s just weird it wasn’t doing this a couple weeks ago and I’ve rebooted everything. Has anybody seen this before? Doesn’t matter if I’m hardwired or not.

Hi Corey
I have the same thing here. Sometimes I don't get that. Try using a different site for the test.
Here are a couple I use and are pretty consistent. You will have to disable Ad blockers though while on the sites or put the site on the whitelist. 
Also you can download speedtest from Microsoft as an app that works well.
Hope it helps.

Sonething is off with your hotspot. Jitter should never be that high and your upload is crap. Here is mine this evening

Borderline dead zone is my issue. I wish I had your speeds. I even have external Omni antennas outside and inline Wilson m2m boosters that boost my signal by 15db.

Just like satellite internet, it is all about location. At my location Viasat could never deliver speeds like this.

Too bad my download speed isnt on par with my upload speed!

With your upload being higher than you download you must be on on a somewhat congested site. But I’d be happy with those results. Here is my hotspot early morning.
