Your Antipodal Point
It depends on the serveur workload, the traffic on the link used to transfert datas and the peering between your ISP and the server's network.
yes but ...
2 servers which are both owned by what used to be the largest mobile company in the world...
50 miles away newbury (World HQ and fastest server) 3mbs
11350 miles away their third largest server, 8mbps
BT say we have 20mbps ... we have nowhere near that... even at 3am, when it might be using used the least we still get 3-4mbps

even more baffling ... just did the test on a mobile phone:
2.1 download expected it to be lower its just normal because its wifi
4.3 upload ... what...? twice the download, it that even possible

no this isn't a glitch, i keep getting very similar results

That's perfectly normal. Tipical use of network is asymetric. And with wireless network, you share bandwith with other people using it. So you have more upload available than download.
