An upload is the act of sending files from a local workstation to a remote workstation.

The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the Internet facility for downloading and uploading files. (If you are uploading a file to another site, you must usually have permission in advance to access the site and the directory where the file is to be placed.)[1]

Dial-up: Up to 54 Kb/s
DSL: 54-2000 Kb/s
Cable: 1000-3000Kb/s

The opposite of this activity is called, downloading. Uploading is usually slower than downloading. This is due to the bottleneck at the modem.
