Wait, is Time Warner Cable screwing me in regards to upload speeds?

Or are these plans normal when it comes to providers?
http://www.timewarnercable.com/en/internet/internet-service-plans.html

According to this, they are advertizing 50Mbps for Download Speeds, and up to 5Mbps for upload speeds for $65 a month for their highest package.

Are upload speeds normally this low? Do internet service providers normally have high DL- low upload speed ratios?

As a Brit, I don't know how the pricing fares, but yes, uploads are usually a fair bit slower than downloads.

Unless you go business class then yeah, that's about par for course. ISPs tend not to want their customers running servers off their residential class connections and that's about the only reason you'd need a high upload speed

@1st and 2nd poster

Ah, okay. Another reason why I was asking was because a few months back in a speed test thread, I could have sworn i saw people getting like 10-20 Mbps upload speed. though then again, i do remember their DL speed going up to the 60-70's. can't remember their provider though

Unless your service plan is specifically identified as synchronous (same bandwidth up or down), yeah, your download speed is typically going to be a whole lot faster than upload. That's true for most any ISP or broadband type.

Yeah, it's rare for the Upload to be the same as the Download; 1/4-1/10th the upload is pretty common.

I'm sort of lucky with my provider, given I get 40D/10U, which is decent in terms of ratio compared to most.


On the other hand, Time Warner beat out Electronic Arts in the first bracket of this year's "Worst Company in the US" ...So they could just be screwing you.

and if they get to do the merger with Comcast, I can't imagine that's going to improve things.
