What is a good typical broadband upload speed compared to download speeds?

Asked by hosa (186points) April 19th, 2019

Yes I researched this before coming here. God, the internet can be so useless and irrelevant on some subjects. I want to know the typical upload speeds for every download speed. Like 1mbps has ____ mbps upload. I know its typically slower but how much slower?
Im thinking especially about a 4 mbps connection ..

With one gig download some internet provider have 880 mbps upload with fiber-optic connections. Others it is one gig and 330 mbps!
My connection speed is usually 250 mbps download and 100 mbps up.
AS is often said “your mileage may vary.”

In Comcast’s territories, the download speed can be high (150, 200, 250, 400 or more) but the upload speeds, in general, are a tiny fraction of that. For example, the offerings in Atlanta all have a maximum of 10mbs up, unless you pay extra.

It’s called “highway robbery”.

Google “test my internet speed”.


Mbps download


Mbps upload

Latency: 13 ms
Server: Never you mind
Your Internet speed is fast

Your Internet connection should be able to handle multiple devices streaming HD videos at the same time.

For me:

Download 4.83

Upload .83

This is pretty much what I expected. I am on fiber to a dslam 1500 ft from my home.
I have Frontier for service.
