Download speeds and upload speeds are equal. Download speeds are slower than upload speeds. Upload speeds and download speeds are different. Upload speeds and download speeds are irrelevant. 2 What does adherence to cabling standards ensure? data security no loss of signal no electromagnetic interference reliable data communications 3 Refer to the graphic.
