    Control Download / Upload bandwidth?

    Hey guys, what's the latest way to control my download and upload bandwidth in windows?

    is there a way I don't know about or does there have to be a downloaded separate program to do this?

    For example, I am uploading a Youtube video right now but on my iphone/ipad I need to use Skype and such at the same time so I need to limit the download/upload of the PC so Skype and etc works on the Phone..

    I don't care how long it takes to upload a video even at 100k/second but I just need my internet speed for the iphone at this moment..

    Only if your ISP provides that here in bama my ISP I cannot even purchase my own router/modem if we are caught using anything they don't give us they will terminate our internet services perm.

    Really sux lol stupid local owned COOP $75 a month for 100mb connection and get capped and slap around lol, that's just internet no phone service or anything else I can bump up to 1gig for like $14 more bucks but I gotta test it first if they will even allow it.

I share an internet connection with several other people. This means that if one person is downloading a heavy amount, the rest suffer from basically unusably slow internet speeds. As it stands currently, short of going around the house and asking each person individually if they are the one...

Upload bandwidth low compared to other OS
I've been prepared to blame my ISP for my poor upload speeds, but today I realised it is only Windows 8 Pro with Media Center (my main OS) that is having the problems. Linux Mint, and an old Windows 8 CP Windows To Go USB stick both achieve the upload and download speeds expected on the same...
