Just like my response at http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6122-0.html?forumID=44&threadID=25429&messageID=284429&tag=srch telephone modems are also asymetric in speed.
This is by design.
As of recently, when I dial up, my sent-receive rate is way out of regular proportion. I'm receiving a lot of data, yet I'm sending little amounts of data. This is interfering with once possible things, such as playing online games.
Is there a clear solution to this?
