I have Just got BB and im confused about up upstream/downstream i have 288 up and 576 down shouldnt they be the same up and down ?

No that is correct. Your upload speed is half your download speed.

i forgot to add that even on a 1Meg line the upload is still 288 on most ISP's.

A similar principle applies to dialup.

Ok thx for that.

There is an explanation click here But basically the 'A' in ADSL stands for 'Asymmetric' meaning the two half?s 'Upload' & 'Download' are not Symmetrical or different. It's the same for everyone, getting a faster 1meg or 2 meg connection often still gives you the low 256 ish speed upload, that?s the way God designed it for some reason, & who are we to argue.

Are you reading the speed from the taskbar icon? That's not the true speed. You need a speed test site. Anyone know the best one these days?
