The bandwidth control prevents users with large bandwidth applications from slowing users who have low bandwidth applications by setting a maximum download and upload speed limit.
Both upload and download speed limits are required because Internet connection speeds vary with the download bandwidth available usually a higher than the upload bandwidth.
Both download and upload speeds are set by clicking on each dropdown menu and selecting the desired speeds. When the speeds have been selected then click on Change Settings for the new speeds to take effect.
If upload and download speed settings have been selected with the Access Codes, then those speed settings will override the bandwidth settings on this page. This permits a slow free Internet service to be provided, while a charge can be made for a fast Internet service.
Similarly, if upload and download byte limits have been selected with the Access Codes, then those speed settings will override the bandwidth settings on this page.
