This number -- the download speed, measured in megabits per second, or Mbps -- is generally the larger of two numbers that define your browsing experience. A separate upload speed is offered that can fluctuate from being the same as the download speed in premium Internet connections, to being barely high-speed standards. Uploading Explained Put plainly, upload speeds represent the amount of data you can send in a given second. This has an obvious impact on tasks such as sending email. But upload bandwidth also consumed with each item seen on a Web page. To download a Web page or the individual elements, the computer must first send a request to download. This represents only a fraction of the overall bandwidth necessary for browsing the Web, which is why so many Internet service providers sell services with upload speeds a fraction of the download speeds. Higher Upload Speeds Many modern applications place a greater demand on upload bandwidth than in the past. Online, real-time games, such as Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games, require constant two-way communication to update your computer on what's happening in the game world and to tell others what you're doing within the game world. Voice over IP also demands as much as 64Kbps of upload and download bandwidth during a call, or stuttering will occur. If you choose to run any of your own servers -- such as a Web, game, or email server -- available upload bandwidth will limit their performance for people outside your network. Shared Upload Speeds These upload-intensive applications present an even bigger issue when multiple users are on your network. If the upload bandwidth is too small, a single VoIP call could cause a game to lag. With the average household placing a greater, two-way strain on a typical Internet connection, it becomes more important to accommodate for simultaneous, continuous uploads. Reasonable Ratio In the average home, upload speeds still account for only a fraction of all Internet traffic. Going too low can cause problems, but securing a higher data rate can be costly. In general, a six-to-one upload-to-download ratio should accommodate most loads. For a 10Mbps download rate, a 1.5Mbps upload rate should suffice. However, this ratio becomes smaller for lower-bandwidth connections, as some requirements, such as VoIP, don't decrease as the connection becomes limited. For a 1Mbps download rate, a 256Kbps upload rate or roughly four-to-one ratio is better. Many free online tools are available to test your current upload speed. Specific services, such as online gaming through video game consoles, demand significantly higher upload speeds.
