I don't have the figures to hand, but for some protocols (FTP?) there 
are acknowledgement packets sent back every so often, and I think that 
10:1 is somewhere near the limit.  With a greater up:down ratio the 
limiting factor in downstream speed is actually the upstream bandwidth! 
  Something like that, anyway.  It matters less what your usage is.

I just happened to find a page which tells me that in the last 9 days I 
have downloaded 15 GB and uploaded 6 GB.
