Why is it when doing a speed test (or when everyone total maxes the upload of a connection), my ping response shoots through the roof?

This may be a very easy question to explain or answer but why is it when my internet connection cable or dsl is being taxed on the upload, which is easily noticeable during a speed test, the ping response sky rockets and everyone on the network suffers while trying to surf the web?
