Upload Speed

The upload speed is the speed per second that you can upload to the web. ADSL broadband packages have slower upload speeds than download speeds (this is the Asymmetric in Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, or ADSL).

Most people with residential broadband packages don’t need to upload much to the internet beyond photos, or small websites, so common upload speeds of 256kb are usually perfectly adequate. Faster home broadband packages do sometimes have faster upload speeds to, eg 448kb, sometimes 786kb, or even higher.

Business broadband packages are more robust so often have upload speeds of 448kb as standard.
