Cable operators: no need for higher upload




At present, the average Internet user does not need a higher upload speed. That enable cable operators UPC and Ziggo. Increasing the download speed has therefore prioritized.

ziggo upc “If the need would be there, we would increase the upload speed, but there are absolutely no customers waiting,” said Ziggo spokesman Erik Doeselaar. “All the research indicates that out.”

His colleague Ronald Sutmuller UPC confirms. “In general, customers do not need even higher upload speeds,” says Sutmuller. “There are customers who would like to, but we have to serve more than one million customers. Currently download many customers important than uploads.” Therefore, the available bandwidth is used to increase the download speed and the upload is not currently up. Since capacity is limited to the cable network, cable operators must make concessions on the up-and download speed.

UPC is downloaded than uploaded to the network, which is the decision to invest would justify. Download speed much more at this time “For customers who want a higher upload speed, the message is: We are working on it, but at this time the download speed is more important.” A higher upload speed could include come streaming video to tablets and phones pass or making backups.

Fiberglass Providers often offer symmetrical connections, where the upload speeds are the same as the download speeds. For cable providers that difference just great. Thus UPC currently offers a download speed for all packages that twenty times as high as the upload. If a subscription with a download speed of 120Mbit / s decreases, so getting an upload speed of 6Mbit / s. Ziggo saves a factor of ten, who subscribe to 150Mbit / s downstream has given 15Mbit / s up.

Earlier on Friday it was known that UPC will offer. in all regions where it is active Internet subscriptions at a rate of 200Mbit / s from April This subscription comes with an upload speed of 10Mbit / s. Ziggo currently offers up to 150Mbit / s down and 15Mbit / s up to. Ziggo, which is acquired by the parent company UPC has no concrete plans for the internet speed also to 200Mbit / s to enter, leave spokesman Van Doeselaar know.

What do you think importantly the download or upload speed of your Internet service should be increased?
