Is It Just Me?

Recommended Posts

Is it just me, or has anyone else had this problem?

when you are uploading more via comcast, your download speeds plummet ridiculously.

i have had this problem ever since ive used comcast, in two different locations, in the last five years.

for instance, just today i was downloading a rather large torrent, and i was wondering why my download speed was only 130-160kb/s, but then i noticed that the upload speed was 90kb/s, so when i limit the upload to about 10-15kb/s, my download speed is fine.

All cable connections do that. :) You need to set your upload to around 75-80% of it's total ability. That's the sweet spot when downloading. Afterwards, you can max it out.

I don't know anyone on cable that doesn't have that problem. Too much upload will result in slow downloads. :)
