Amazingly Slow Upload Speeds

Hi there,

 

I'm just irritated and annoyed at my current upload speed. I believe I have High Speed 10, and my upload speed at home is terrible. Dropbox uploads are capped at 54KB/s and uploading 9mb attachments on Gmail take at least 5 minutes. This is really annoying me and it's not what I paid to get. I did speed tests on both Shaw and speedtest.net, and both said I should get at least 0.49mb/s (~500kb/s). It is obviously also not my computer's problem, as when I go to SFU for school, it's almost 700KB/s for upload, and 3MB/s download (I only get 500KB/s MAX download speed).

 

If this continues, I'm seriously thinking of switching ISPs.

 

 

Thank you for your help
