    I just called my ISP and they sent me to a few sites which i tested my upload speed at. It kept comming up at about 123 kb/s yet whenever im uploading (via FTP, MSN messenger, AIM, ect.) it only goes at 14 kb/s. Does anybody know how to fix this? 5 TD to the man who helps me get my upload speed back up to its max or so.

    It also depends on the person you're uploading to... so you can only go as fast as their connection allows, as well as dealing with stuff like uploading to a kid in sweeden from Texas, bad pipes, etc. Geneerally on the bandwidth tests, those are the fastest you'll ever get anywhere (with a few exceptions).

    What programs are you using to upload things? Actual AIM? (Not DeadAIM, Trillian, etc), what FTP program? and also who is your ISP?

    Personally, to test my speeds, i find the best way is to download a lot of random files (and upload as well) from a P2P, like Kazaa. You'll max out your bandwidth with enough of them, and see your true bandwidth.

    Broadband companies nearly always cap the upload rate. With Comcast I'm limit to 256 kbits/sec (32 KB/sec) which is barely enough for my needs. Remote Desktop Connection does not work very well over that much bandwidth and I don't often upload other files, especially large ones.

    Doh! Grommet, is that kilobytes? If so, that's about 112 kilobits, and if that upload tester is showing kilobits, then that's correct unfortunately. I know that Charter Communications limits uploads to 128 kilobits/sec. Try http://www.dslreports.com/stest
