Re: old OS onto new HDD?
Seriously doubt its your hard drive. A Hard drive can cause weird issues but the issue you have is somewhat odd for an HD. So I am thinking it is, as you said a coincidence.
Upload speeds are normally a considerable amount slower then your download speed I have 16mb download speed and only .75 upload speed on my internet right now. I am assuming you are running on cable. Check your speeds at a non prime-time hour of the day and see what they look like then.
