It means that you probably have a 10/10 (up down) internet connection. You are getting the bandwidth reported, which is theoretically what is currently left after everything else currently sending and receiving on that link. If you don't have anything being served up, I'd be concerned about your up speed. 

Most residential internet services have in the contract that you will not use the connection for business purposes (at least in the US). That is why most residential services are asynchronous (not the same up speed as down speed). If you are not serving anything up to the internet, you don't need very much up bandwidth, and if you are not running a business, you shouldn't really be services anything up.
