I have just installed a 40Mbps Telkom fibre line. Get download speeds of 35Mbps but upload speed is less than 1Mbps.
This upload speed is less than that on my backup 10Mbps ADSL line!
Is this normal?
Can't work in the cloud at this speed or do offline backups. Even Skype struggles.

You should be getting around 4meg upload on a 40Mbps line (if VDSL is anything to go by).

Speak to your ISP about it.

With most ISPs the upload speed on fibre is 50% of the download speed.
