    Ok I never did understand all this kbs shit, but I wanted to know my upload, I been told it's 256kbps, ok fair enough, I then asked what upload I get, is that about 26k/bs, he just kept saying it's 256kbps FFS!!!

    So please could someone explain to me what 256kbps is in upload terms?

    Though, the reality will be any upload will flucuate. My max upload is 48kB/s but it rarely gets that high...
