Downloading requires some upload overhead. On something like 100/1 it would be impossible to reach full download speed. Effect on 15/1 isn't that bad, but it's not good either

Relatively common misconception.

Yes, TCP has to have a stream of responses.

No, they don't take even 1% of your bandwidth.

More like 0.1%.

I dislike highly asymmetric connections as much as anyone else, but you'll have no problem hitting 15 Mbps down and 0.9 Mbps up simultaneously.
