My bandwidth seems to be divided between upload and download.

GigaTribe uses TCP protocol to exchange files. When exchanging files with TCP protocol, control information is sent from the receiver to the sender to make sure there is no data loss. So when you're uploading a file, you're also downloading control information; when you're downloading a file you're also uploading control information. Part of your bandwidth is used for control information. This is obvious if you are uploading a file and then decide to download another one, you will see your uploading rate decrease.
