First of all, What are Symmetrical and Asymmetrical Connections?

Symmetrical connections are exactly what they sound like; a connection with equal download and upload speeds. For example, with a 500/500 Mbps fibre internet connection you get 500 Mbps of download AND upload speeds. This is for the larger part never required on a home network. Upload speed is normally used for sending mails or for someone downloading FROM you. Why should you have to pay for someone else to get FROM you? 

Asymmetrical connection, however, does NOT have equal download/upload speeds. For example, 60/3 means 60 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload speed. Asymmetrical speeds are usually found in traditional internet connections, for homes and internet cafes. There is not much you will ever have to upload that will cause your connection to require more than 1Mb/s. The most common thing is emails which seldom need more than Kb/s

Pros of an Asymmetrical Connection

  1. The number one pro for an Asymmetrical fibre line is the price. Asymmetrical connections are almost always less expensive.
  2. Fast download speeds. You’ll still get high-speed downloading with an asymmetrical connection. If uploading isn’t a high priority for your home, you may not need to make the extra investment.
