Hello, @rzninform

I remember @BobbyIliev answered a similar question a few months ago here:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/questions/why-the-vast-differences-in-upload-and-download-speeds

Basically, the speedtest-cli command that comes out of the default apt repository is faulty and is not presenting correct details. What you should try doing is using the latest version of the speedtest-cli binary:

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py

Then make run the test again:

python speedtest.py

Hope that this helps!
Regards,
Alex
