Thread: Uploading

  1. #1
    Why is it that a file that it took me a number of hours to download is suddenly uploaded from my shared folder in a matter of an hour or so. I have watched this more than once. I have cable but they must have something else.

    Or you dl'd from someone with a smaller ul limit than u have. Since ul limits r smaller than dl limits, this is usually where the bottleneck forms.

    Even if the person(s) you downloaded a file from has a connection IDENTICAL to yours, they may be uploading to far more people at once.

    30 KB/sec upload bandwidth is pretty good for a broadband connection, and fortunately getting more common every day. If someone with such a link has 10 uploads at once, the average upload speed will be less than 3 KB/sec. But if they only have 5 uploads, then the average upload speed may be close to 6 KB/sec.

    If you have very few uploads at all -- even only 1 going at a time, then you might be sending file/s out to individuals at 10+ KB/sec.

    There are many who think disabling sharing or setting upload speed VERY low (like 3 KB/sec on a broadband connection) makes their downloads the fastest. This is technically true in a sense... but not if everyone does it.

    Maybe it's just me, but I've never noticed a significant difference in dl speeds as long as I've set my ul limit to 80% even compared to disabling ul. Considering this, there's no reason to set ur ul limit to 3k on a broadband connect unless ur just a greedy leech. Gotta agree with Switek on this count.
