picture upstream as uploading, when you send a file to someone else. so the top speed you can reach is 128Kb/s.

picture downstream as downloading, when you receive a file from someone else. the maximum speed that you will get when receiving that file will be 3Mb/s (which is standard).

As daremedy said, upstream is upload speed and downstream is download speed. Uploading is usually only used for playing online games and sharing files.
