Saturated Upload Kills Download Speed

When I am running a large backup that saturates the upload bandwidth, my down speed takes a massive hit and struggles to load even basic web pages let alone stream content. It also introduces a massive amount of latency.

Is there any throttling that goes on when upload bandwidth is being fully utilised?

@alec-hs it sounds like the upload stream your talking about is one continuous flow rather than lots of individual requests that would be associated from multiple applications and/or devices.

For the download stream to function it still needs to have a little bit of headroom for the requests to be sent [via the upstream] in order for your devices to receive thus information.

Kind Regards
