I use dial-up internet access. According to the following web site my download speed (to the computer) is significantly slower than my upload speed (to the internet). Isn't that backwards? Shouldn't download speed be faster?
My modem uses V.90 technology instead of the latest V.92 technology. I've read that V.92 makes upload speed as fast as download speed. This is the improvement V.92 has over V.90 which has upload speed slower than download. I borrowed a V.92 modem and got similar results, download is significantly slower that upload speed. Why is that? Is there a parameter somewhere that I can set to improve download performance? I've tried two Linux distro's and two computers. Same result. What's up?
BTW, my speeds are 44kbs down and 84 up.
