I thought you could do either 45Mbps in, 45Mbps out, or > a mix of both, not 45Mbps In, and 45Mbps out at the same time > (90mbps).. The underlying link should be doing both 45Mb/s in and 45Mb/s out at the same time. However, with TCP/IP, if the downstream (say) link is so saturated with downloads that the acknowledgements to uploads are heavily delayed or lost, this can cause uploads to be throttled. The extent to which this occurs depends on all sorts of factors, such as the TCP stacks on the hosts at either end, the routers on the link, and whatnot. -- Another tradition is to soak the pudding in brandy and then set fire to it.
