I'm trying to decipher all of the speed abbrev. i  have a fairly fast connection... i think but i don't understand why my down speed is so much faster than the up speed. is this normal if not can it be fixed? can anyone help me?

Uploads in the general 800Kbps range compared to download ranges of 2Mbps to 30Mbps speeds.

I think fiber has a higher upload speeds. And the occasional cable system with really fast speeds can be in the 3Mbps range.

But unless you are uploading large torrents all day long, no need for high upload speeds, says the ISP's. But then theres Comcrap and them not wanting anyone to do Torrents on their network.
