Hi all. I am looking for some advice and help from all you techno wizards..
I've recently signed up for a Cable TV and Internet package here in South Korea.
My cable is working a treat..,
However I'm kinda disappointed with my internet connection
!! The problem seems to be uploading pages...
It is very slow compared to the usual internet speed in Korea.
For example, I can hardly watch You tube or listen to radio stations without some kind of serious interruptions
Downloading is quite a good bit better though..
Often internet pages take an age to load.. I'm sure I can do better than this what with Korea possessing one of the fastest internet connections on the planet!!
I use a Toshiba Laptop, Intel Pentium 4 which is about 4 years old now..
I mainly use Firefox.
Could the fact that I've an old laptop be the main problem or are there any other reasons that my internet is so slow at opening pages..
Ive only recently returned here and I was expecting a lot better..
Its kind of sad that my internet connection (at least uploading) was better in rural Ireland than in Korea...lol
I ran a test with speed test above and my result was
Download 30.88 Mb/s
Upload 1.45 Mb/s
How come uploading is sooo slow??
Is it a hardware problem...or what..
I really hope I can get this resolved as its quite frustrating..
I hope somebody can shed some light for me!!
