Broadband speeds Download and upload

  compumac 10:37 23 May 2018

I have several PC's, laptops tablets and smartphones. All show download speeds of around 45Mbps and all show uploads of around 8Mbp, EXCEPT one tablet (Samsung S3) which suddenly started to alternate upload between 0.06/0.10, whereas it had been the same upload as the others.

Any thoughts out there as to why?

Has to be software related. What's been added lately

Samsung S3 is a smartphone, not a tablet. Are all your devices using the same gateway? As wee eddie says maybe something you installed has changed your phone connectivety speed. Maybe you accidentally gave permissions to some/several apps to connect and they are abusing the privilege?

Should have clarified this, it is a Galaxy Tab S3 tablet not a Galaxy S3 phone
