my upload is around 2500kbps with a download of around 1500kbps,

im on the grant county pud fiber optic zipp line (98837) fiber is up to the side of the apartment with cat5 cable running in to a smc7004abr router/firewall and then into the computer....i was wondering why my upload is so much faster than my download....shouldint the speeds be symetrical?

is there anything i can do to improve my download speed? others in general area on fiber get about 2500-3000 both ways sometimes more...but dont have the same isp as me.......help me cable guy!

Though the upload test is accurate, it is not perfected (the download speed test is perfected) if your speed is off a bit, I would not worry about it at all, right now the upload test is very accurate up to about 500Kbps ~~ the higher you go from there, the more inaccurate it becomes. I am currently writing a version 8985.245564B (lol I have been developing this test for some time now... with no perfect success)... it is a very difficult script to perfect... the current version I have is using a form submission methd that varries from user to user. But I think I am going to have to code this in another program language to get it right, or make a java applet which I do NOT want to do, because applets are lame.

Well anyways, don't trip about it... that is most likely not on your end ~~ but you can 110% trust the download speed test results :-) ~~ you should try uploading via FTP to a server and pull your own results like that... because other sites out there are in the same bind as me... they just won't admit it ;-)
