Why Download Speed Greater Than Upload Speed?

download speed greater than upload
Normally in any internet connection either the 4G or wireless or cable internet the download speed is greater then upload speed. This is all because of the structure designed by your ISP who assign more priority to downloading rather then uploading.

Reason why Download Speed is Greater?

  • Mostly high speed Internet connections are asymmetric including DSL or 4G etc.
  • Asymmetric is a technique where a data packet can either transfer or received. They cannot move in both direction.
  • They are designed to provide much better speed for downloading than uploading because most users spend much more time on downloading the contents available on the Internet than they do uploading.
So, Internet service providers have designed their systems to give priority to downloading that is why, for many users uploading files is quite a bit slower than downloading file.

What is Downloading According to Internet Service Providers?

Downloading is not only song or movie downloading via internet, suppose we opens a webpage or any image online via google is a kind of downloading. Surfing is also counted as downloading either we play a video on youtube.com.

Generally, 90% of people spend their time on watching videos and opening tons of websites. As mention in previous heading ISP's designed their structure to provide focused speed on downloading rather then uploading.
