Upload = Send
Download = Receive
In computer networks, download means to receive data from a remote system, typically a server such as a web server, an FTP server, an email server, or other similar systems. This contrasts with uploading, where data is sent to a remote server.
For example, looking at Facebook you are using download. The information you are looking at, you are receiving from Facebook. When you post a comment, upload a picture, or comment on someone else’s post, you are using upload. By hitting “Post”, you are sending that information to Facebook for others to see.
Anytime you use the internet to send information from your device, you are using upload. This could be things like backing up your pictures to cloud storage, using Wi-Fi calling, or sending an email.
When you use the internet to access information from another source, whether an app on your smartphone, YouTube.com, your banking website, etc., you are using download to receive that information.
