What does upload speed test show?
Upload speed is the indicator which demonstrates the speed of uploading files from your devices to the global net or from one device to another. Fast upload speed is needed for sending emails, playing video games in real time, posting photos and videos on social networks and send any other data to someone else’s server.
Download speed is considered to be more important, but you should know the upload speed as well for correct evaluation of your Internet provider’s work.
If upload speed is slow but download speed is fast, it could be the problem of some tariff plan features. As a rule, internet speed indicated in the tariff means the download speed. For this reason the upload speed is not a crucial indicator. In such cases, you need to contact support of your provider company. Probably you just need to change the rate.
