There are a few sites to test your speed:

Your results should be more or less same.

I'm having an issue with my upload speed.  In Houston I have the 1GB service and I am only getting an average of a 350 MB upload while I get between 800-900 down.  I thought the speeds were supposed to mirror?

I am on a Desktop running Win7 and connected directly to the gateway via LAN

NO internet service, that I'm aware of, has an upload speed equal to the download speed. I am dsl, and i get six megabits down, and one half of a megabit (512 k) up.

 

My parents have cable, and while they get upwards of 75 mbps down, they only get about 7-10 mbps up.

 

Truth is, that is just as well, because the way it works, you are typically downloading way more than you''d ever upload.

 

Even under the new fcc broadband standars, it's like 30 mbps down, and 3-5 mbps up.

 

Just the nature of the beast.

Some services do have symetric data rates, but it's rare.  Actually, I think Gigapower 300 was 300/300.  

 

When allocating limited bandwidth resources (e.g. frequency bands on copper on the last mile, fibers and frequencies on multi-mode fibers), most data is flowing downstream and so more resources are provided to carry data in that direction.  The bandwidth limitations placed on subscribers normally reflects this reality.

------------------------------ 

I honestly did not know ANY internet connection did that. Seriously, that makes ATT's Gigapower service a real competitor to the others. Not sure anyone would need the upload speed, but nice to know it's available if needed.

 

300 megs is impressive just for download speed. Lucky duck to have it. I live with 6 megs down, and half of a meg up. (to be fair, it is adiquate for most of my uses, also.)

yes, with Gigapower, they have two options 300d/300u and 1GBd/1GB u

When they first installed it and before tehy put in the new gateway, I was able to get the 1GB speed on the upload and the download, but once the new gateway was put in, it was limited.

the 1000 up and down is new and it is offered down here in the Metro Houston area.  I signed up because I do photography as a hobby and need to share files a lot so while most people don't bother with upload, a fast upload is HUGE for me
