Symmetrical speeds refer to the bandwidths of your internet connection. When both your maximum upload and download bandwidths are equal, they are symmetrical. An example would be Ting Internet’s Home Fiber 1000 plan that comes with download speeds of 1,000 Mbps and upload speeds of 1,000 Mbps.
Typically, providers will prioritize download speeds over upload speeds because it’s needed for more common online activities such as web browsing, streaming videos, and video chatting. However, for users like content creators and remote workers who need to upload large files to the internet, upload speeds are critical.
