I was wondering if you guys know of any way to temporarily swap some download bandwidth for upload bandwidth? If so, how?

I have asymmetric DSL with download up to 20Mbps and upload only 2-3Mbps. I have lots of devices on the home network (4 operating systems in terms of computers: ubuntu, win7/8, chrome and osx + a number of other devices in terms of phones, ipods, bluray, tv, nintendo wii, network printer, etc etc.). However they are not all on the network at the same time so when I want to upload a video to youtube or dropbox it takes a really long time.

Can only be arranged with your ISP unfortunately. And they will want $$$.

As says, the only way is to pay more money to your ISP to increase the speed of your connection, but even then there the limit of their network capabilities.
