What happens on your mobile or other devices?
ok so on my phone I cannot select a server like coreix from the edge or chrome browsers, it just have auto select.

I did run the tests now on my laptop connected to router and get the same result, capped at 5.46Mbps on international upload.
And Chrome is fine, 100Mbps

Any local speedtest site I get 100Mbps
I even tried CISP JHB and Randburg and get 100 Mbps

I have nothing specifically set in the Mikrotik router to limit Edge international upload speeds. In fact firewall is factory default.
The issue is only with Edge, I have no problem with upload speed in any other app or service.

So that is why I find it so absolutely bizarre. My laptop and pc reacts the same.

So when I test in Edge, I'm getting the same results you were.

Thanks for confirming this Joshua, so is not a issue just on my end. So I am going to stop digging, is nothing on my computers or router.

Strange is that x7razor says his Edge and Chrome give the same values.

I am running the latest Edge.

Seeing the same discrepancy between edge and other browsers on my side too. I have a strong inkling that this exact thing has happened in the past :unsure:
Thanks for checking.
Yes I do myself recall a similar situation 1+ year ago.
I wonder if they are aware of this, or if it is intentional which baffles the brain.

Does seem to be a commonly reported issue with edge uploads...

Thanks Roelf.
I tried their recommendations and it has made things even worse for download and upload now.

Edge



Chrome:



And it only affects international, Local is perfect.




EDIT: all sorted, just reversed 2 settings.
But edge upload still slow 5Mbps, chrome is fine.
