Download speed vs Upload speed

You can notice that especially if you're maxing out your upload, Downloading also requires some upload bandwidth and if that is unavailable due to it being used up by other application then your download speed will suffer, by how much is dependent on what you're downloading and what program you're using to do it. Bittorrent for example requires quite 'a lot' of upload speed to be able to download at very high speeds
