Hi,

You will find that if you're uploading at your maximum rate that your download speed will drop to about half the potential maximum.

Robert: It's interesting to know that, but it would have been even more interesting (and much more useful!) to know WHY that is the case. Would you (or anyone!) supply some sort of explanation for this behaviour, please.
