Re: Download/Upload speeds

Hello

The main reason for slower upload speeds than download would be due the limited telecommunications infrastructure.

On most connections of VM they use and 10 to 1 ratio upto the 350 meg connection, so in face a 100 meg connection give you a upload of 10 meg.

Have a look at https://www.maketecheasier.com/upload-speeds-slower-than-download-speeds/ will explain it better, it is all do the number of channels that are available on the cable.
