Subject Re: [users@httpd] not uploading at full speed
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2006 10:30:54 GMT
ADSL upload speeds are in BITS/Sec so my 288KB/s is about 28.8K bytes per
second, allowing 8bits per byte and overhead of the TCP/IP protocol
An upload speed reported as 237 KB/s has a maximum transmission speed of
roughly 23.7 thousand characters per second.  You're getting about half of
that, which might imply two transfers running concurrently or congestion in
your local loop (your exchange in other words).
