I just want to ask the community about this problem. I know a lot of you don't consider this a problem at all but a few of us see this as important as the download speed. I just upgraded my DSL plan from 2MB to 5MB because I badly need this for an online job. It is a requirement that upload and download speed should be fast however based on this speedtest results, download and upload speed is not in proportion at all. I've tried checking the community for the same topic however, I am not satisfied of how they answered the question. The replies are merely not a solution to the problem itself. Now, I've looked into one which says, it would be best to call Globe hotline for this matter. I've tried calling them with regards to this matter. They told me that they do not utilize the upload not as much as the download and they also told me to look for a tech specialist for me to be able to assure that there are no spywares which is a reason for slow upload speeds. I have a lot of devices and I tested them all including Apple devices and I still got same results. I asked them if it is possible to increase my upload speed up a bit because honestly, your upload speed should be on par with your download or the gap between the download and upload speed shouldn't be that far. If you look at this, correct me if I'm wrong, they're putting a limit to the download as well as the upload but if you call their hotline they would not even admit that they're controlling the upstream and downstream rate. I'm not saying that I'm expert on this however, I think this picture alone is enough for me to be convinced. I'm just a normal subscriber and I got confused on this matter and I need help with this. Your replies are highly appreciated.

These are the speedtest results:
DURING THE TIME WHEN MY PLAN WAS STILL 2MB:
There is a slight increase of upload speed but srsly?? 0.50mb increase?? This should never be the case, I think. For every 3MB increase of download speed, there is a 0.50MB increase in the upload? LOL.. I hope Globe will really look onto these matter and I hope for this to be resolved as soon as possible.
(I've already checked with other subscribers in my area and they're experiencing this too, however, they do not know about these stuffs because they're just using the net for recreational stuffs.)
