How come my upload speed is so low compared to what is advertised?

I have Shaw High Speed 25, which is supposed to give me up to 2.5 Mbps upload, however on a good day I'd be lucky to get .5 Mbps upload. Is this just a part of the "up to" advertising, or should I be getting much more. It is making playing games on-line almost impossible as any bit of upload destroys my latency, and any time my family wants to upload things to email to relatives, the internet becomes almost unusable until the small uploads are completed.
