    Question Best ADSL Upload Speed

    I'm looking for the cheapest 1MB upload speed, if that's still the max for ADSL? More than that would be great too, if still ADSL.

    Can't seem to see UL mentioned anywhere on Telkom site or any of the bandwidth provider sites

    AFAIK, 4MB is .5MB up and 10MB is 1MB up. There are 6MB and 8MB lines in between which hopefully have a faster upload speed.

    Anyone know what they are?

    With all the stuff happening in the cloud these days, I need the upload ability...

    I think only 10Meg has 1meg up, 6/8 is still 0.5. I could be wrong.

    Eish. As opposed to 0.5 for 4? Hardly seems worth it..

    Do you have a link for that?

    Yup.

    We're talking 0.5 or 0.6 up for the slower accounts. You can get 1 up for the 10meg line.

    I just need to know if there is a cheaper way to get the 1meg upload on ADSL, IE on the 6 or 8 meg line

    I think that would depend if it's ADSL or ADSL2+, if it's ADSL it will be 8/0.5, if ASDL2+ you could maybe get 8/1.
    On my 10Mbps line I have 10/1, but it ends up being 0.7Mbps up for burst and if you upload the rest of the net is dead. Uncapped LTE deal from Telkom is still the best bet if you require upload, even if they keep changing the FUP.

    Think it's only the 10Mb lines that get 1Mb upload...

    Pity.

    I'll probably just go for the 0.5mb up on a 4mb down line and leave uploads on overnight.

    I've been using Netlimiter to prevent Google Photos/OneDrive/Dropbox etc from killing the line.

    It's pretty crazy what unchecked uploading does to your connection
