Not necessarily, I don't require a person to be a friend to share with them.

actually the public folder is good for putting images to upload the image url (public link) to websites ,
bit like your own imageshack.

I'm assuming this is due to my ISP connection, because the upload speed when I test it with Speedtest.net is approximately that speed also. If I had a higher upload speed, would the Dropbox app use all that is available, or would it still be slow?
Yes, the more upload speed you have the faster this goes. I uploaded something from work last night and was getting around 500KB/sec on my upload speed via dropbox.

Limited upload speeds are why I don't make huge use of cloud based services yet, and also the reason that I am more than happy with 2-5GB of free space...because I use the cloud storage mainly for small files.
