Hello.
So... I have a simple question.... no wait... let me explain...
I've had 3000 Kb/s download, with 512 upload. At night time they would raise it to... well... they would double it. (Both values)
I was frustrated, because my upload could never catch up with my download.

So... I've decided spend a few extra, and I've gotten an upgrade, now i have 8000 down and still only (they weren't adverting it) 512 upload. And at night time, they raise only download speed, not an upload... I mean how the hell am I supposed to share? (BTW my PC is ON 24/7)

I mean WTF?

So my question is...

Does upload cost more for the ISP or is there some other reason?

Upload does not cost "more" as the bandwidth most ISPs order come with the same up/down speeds. The reason they limit it is to keep people from seeding torrents, or running servers on consumer grade internet accounts. Also, as far as I can remember they have not been able to bond channels with uploading - but considering you're only 8mb/s that's not the problem/reason here (this is why alot of Cable ISPs offer 50+mbps with only 4-6mbps upload).

If you spend the extra money for a high-end fiber optic connection (T or OC series) you'll have the same down/up speeds.
