Default Uploading Files (Internet In General)

When I go To The Speedtest Website It Says That My Upload Is Well Into 500KBS+ Yet When I try To Upload A File On The Net I max Out At 50KBS?
And That's With Using File Factory Turbo!! (Without That I'm At 35KBS) I'm Behind A Router But Surely That Cannot Be Taking All Of That Upload Capacity? If I were To Connect Directly To The Modem And Disconnect The Router Completely Would I really Realise That Kind Of Speed In Upload? Or At The Least Better Than My Current!

I Ask First Because It'll Be An Effort To Connect Directly And Wanna Check This Out First!

Internet/networking companies reference your speed by kilobits or megabits or gigabits per second, instead of kilobytes or megabytes or gigabytes per second. There are 8 bits in a byte, therefore if you rate something in bits, it makes the amount seem like 8 times more to the untrained consumer.

500kbps is more like 62 KB/s. That's under ideal circumstances, without any bottlenecks on the other end, for wherever you are uploading to.

Ahh, I'll be settling for 50 KB/s Then it seems
1 Hour 20 is quite a wait just to upload 250/300 MB

There is a limit on the amount of capitals you can use every day (CQ, Cap Quota), built into the TCP/IP stack. If you exceed that within 24 hours, the normal thing your ISP does is limit your upload speeds. This took me many months to figure out.
