Upload speed

What is broadband upload speed?

Broadband upload speed refers to the speed at which data, e.g. an email, can be transmitted from your device to the internet. Broadband upload speed is measured in megabits per second (Mbps).

A higher upload speed means that you can send data faster, which can be important for tasks such as video conferencing, online gaming and uploading large files like videos or photos to the internet.
