ye Rich...that is the true.

1mbps (1+ whatever zip advantage is gained)

see my phone line is 6.9 mbps download speed but only 1 mbps upload. 

(well today it is at 6.9...sometimes it's at about 5.5 mbps DOWN ................but the UP  always stays at 1/mbps....

It all depends on technology used and subscription deal with ISP.

For example if it would come to ADSL2+, 6.9Mbps down could be considered rather low, while 1 Mbps up is close to the upper limit.

If only transfer time is what matters for you, sure you could save some by employing a high performance compressor of type *paq; but at the expense of compression time and resources usage.
