Has anyone else experience a significant drop in the LTE upload speed over the last couple of weeks? I was getting great upload speed (one of the things I love about being on LTE), and now it is horrendous. Here are my latest speed test results:

Remember that Telkom's LTE is based on TDD, with only about 1/3 of the time-slots assigned to upload, so it is inherently setup to promote download, but from the sounds of it there might be some other issues in your area. Log a call.

I posted about this a few weeks ago. My upload speed is also non existant.

I logged a call and Telkom sent out a tech to come do some tests. Despite the fact that most of the tests failed telkom is convinced nothing is wrong.

Good luck.

I can also confirm that in the last 2 weeks my upload speeds have degraded - was sitting at 2-3Mbps, now averaging 256Kbps...
