    What is your advertised upload from your ISP? Downloads are often much faster than uploads on a lot of ISPs. But yours shouldn't be that drastic.

    I think Verizon's DSL policy would be somewhere between 128 and 256Kbs, with 1.5 meg downstream. Just as a reference.

    At this price tier you can get lower downstream with higher upload speeds. You have to call them to get this info.

    Are you sure your ISP hasn't shaped your bandwith or connection,
    Cause that will lower your connection upload and download speed

    Pretty much the ISP has reduced his download and upload speed so he cant go too far over his monthly download limits
