To speed things up:

Step 1:  Get a faster connection
Step 2:  Get a faster connection
Step 3:  Get a faster connection
Step 4:  Get a faster connection
Step 5:  Get a faster connection

That is pretty much it.
Things just "are what they are" when it comes to that.

Contrary to popular misconceptions propagated by ISPs that only focus on residential customers,....the most important speed is the Upload Speed,...not the Download Speed.  Things like VPNs for example will always lock in at the slower Upload speed and that is the speed they will run in both directions.  So you want to get the fastest upload speed you can get,...preferably a Synchronous connection (same speed in both directions).

That goes for "both ends".  Everything is an "upload" to somebody,...it is either going to be an upload from the remote user's perspective,...or it will be an upload from the local business end's perspective,...so in the end,...both directions are an "upload".

ok understood!!!!:)i had to ask a daft question.

i wonder which uk isp's provide the hightest upload speeds and the cost of those residential lines as most people will get an internet connection based on the fact that the sales guys say your download speed is 10 mb for eg and your upload speed is 1mb for eg but customers always appear to concentrate on the download just like i did!!!!!!!!!

thanks!

Yea, you just have to ask around and see what they offer.  They may offer different things based on what you pay for.  I'm in the US so I'm not familiar with what it in the UK.
