i think broadband providers generally give you lots more bandwidth download that upload.
the only thing to do i think is contact them and ask for your bandwidth to be divided up more evenly and see if they will do it.

To improve your upload speed talk to your ISP. There is no other way to increase speed. Unless your talking about HTTP compression.

Define "slow." Apache is a web server, or rather, an http daemon. I'm also confused by the term "my ISP's Apache" and not sure what you mean by that. If you have an httpd.conf file, then it's your Apache, I would think. You shouldn't have access to your ISP's httpd.conf file!

Are you running Apache from your server? Then your speeds, upload and download, are determined by your pipe, that is, your speed connection type. Too many factors to list on this, ATM, PPPoE, QoS, all other kinds of variables involved, not to mention you own configuration.

What is your connection type and speed?

thanks a lot for your replies! i run an apache on my local box that serves the internal net of our firm. uploads are ok here. but i'm wirting applications for the public net and in this case i have no influence on apache's configuration. but if it is basically a question of bandwidth i guess we should look for a different provider or a different contract with the current one.
I had the idea to gather some info in this respect before going to talk to the ISP. thanks again for your help! j.

i dont know the exact quality of our dsl connection. but it seems to me pretty fast usually. all i know is that that uploads to the public server take about 1 minute per mb. (it should be half a second ;-))
