Ok so a client's download speed is only as fast as a server's upload speed, and vice versa. Based on the answers to this post:

In other words, the data transfer rate between the two computers is only as fast as the speed of the "bottleneck".

Let's pretend the two computers are in two different networks and both have 100Mbps internet connection. Ben wants a copy of a file in Mark's computer hard disk with 30Mbps read speed. Does this mean that Ben can download the file at a speed of around 30Mbps only, despite having an internet connection faster than 30Mbps?

LOL The fact that I made this simple doesn't mean this is a homework. Does it really have to be technical? It's summer vacation here in the Philippines. :) – Mywiki Witwiki Apr 13 '12 at 9:08
Think pipes: there is no way that water can come out of the pipe faster (volume rate) than it goes into the pipe. This is true for any subsection of the pipe. So everything downstream of the bottleneck can only go at the bottleneck speed. – pjc50 Apr 13 '12 at 9:36
Negative vote? I had a hard time searching Google, that's why I posted it here, as a last resort. – Mywiki Witwiki Apr 13 '12 at 9:56
