    I have an advertised upload speed of 256KB/s but for some reason I am only achieving 30KB/s through FTP. What gives?

    You get 256kilobits per second upload. FTP is measuring in bytes which consist of 8 bits which is why you're seeing 30KB/s on your software.

    Are you sure? I'm pretty positive it was a big B (Byte)... let me double check.

    You have a 256 kiloBIT upload unless you're paying hundreds of dollars per month. So 30Kbyte is pretty good. Damn close to theoretical maximum.

    256 kilobits = 32 kilobytes

    256 kilobytes = 2 megabits

    2 megabits upload on DSL = $rape
