We all hear of increasingly faster BB download speeds, I have recently moved house and my speed has gone from about 526Kbps to something like 2.2Kbps, very nice! But my upload speed has stayed pretty constant at say 260Kbps. Talking to others with even faster download speeds the same relatively poor upload speeds are found. Can anyone explain why?
The A in ADSL stands for assymetric. SDSL would be nice if it was widely available and didn't cost the earth. But ADSL is what we're stuck with and that means compartively slow uploads. Loading large websites on to servers is a barrel of fun.
Well basically it is because I live out in the sticks so I have the usual built in compromise of isolation from my exchange. If I could I would because when moving my ISP cut me off after 2 days. The had not collected my money by direct debit so they called me a bad debter!! Ho Hum.
