I want to switch to broadband but am slightly confused over upload speeds. No ISP's seem to talk about them. They only talk about download speed.
I want to go for a 512k package but would welcome some advice on what upload speed I should expect for that. Do most packages have 256k upload?
I've heard people mention that some 512k packages only have upload of 125k (i.e. NTL) or thereabouts. I don't want to get caught out. The latest Tesco's deal looks very attractive but nowhere on their website does it mention upload.
true...you want whats known as SDSL...Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line...does exactly what it says on the tin...your download and upload speeds are the same...so say you want 1Mb...you get that both ways...but be warned...unless your really wealthy you will find it hard to get this and its not available everywhere just yet...mainly used for big businesses.
Thanks all for your responses. The reason I asked about upload was that I understood that to be a critical element to performance in online gaming along with download time. If 256k is the norm then that's what I'll aim to get.
Thanks for the note about Tesco's. I don't think I'll be going there. Especially when I have phoned their customer care line twice (as displayed on their website) to ask them some questions and I hear "This line is not yet in operation" - Marvellous customer care! I feel sorry for anyone already with them who has problems.
