Uploading will almost definately take longer than downloading seeing your computer has to organise what it wents to send, choosing which data of packets, sometimes this can be slow on some computers
The main reason why people get broadband (such as DSL in your case or cable) is mainly for downloads, they don't pay much attention to uploads so i don't think it is anything to worry about

Well my DSL is 512/512 so I should be able to download 52kb/s and upload 52kb/s. Usually I download 52kb/s and upload 40kb/s, with no problems. U should upload a little slower than the maximum, if I upload with 52kb/s then the download speed drops quite much.

Well I live in Europe. I bet that in usa u have cheaper prices. These are the ones that I can get. The prices are in

256 kbit/s / 256 kbit/s 24,90
512 kbit/s / 512 kbit/s 24,90
1 Mbit/s / 512 kbit/s 30,00
2 Mbit/s / 512 kbit/s 47,00
8 Mbit/s/ 1 Mbit/s * 59,00

* max speed 8/1 Mbit/s usually atleast 2 Mbit/s/512 kbit/s.

So the one I have is 512 kbit/s / 512 kbit/s.
