Yes. Upload speed on ADSL (if that's what you have rather than just DSL) is always slower than download speed (that's the reason for the "A" - asymmetric). It's a balancing act - because most people download more data than they upload, download speeds are maximized at the expense of upload.

Some ISPs will let you tune the balance more to your requirements.
