Slow Uploads Speed

#1 Postby hecolivares » Oct 14, 2011 2:33 pm

I did a test uploading a 7mb file with an iphone connection. Using the Xfilesharing script I get an average of 25 kb/sec. I compared it uploading the same file to megaupload and there I get an average of 50 kb/sec. Any Idea why? I had complaints from users and they are preferring to upload to other places using a registered account.

I´m using a 100tb.com dedicated server.

Geolocate your users and get servers in different places if you want faster upload and download speeds... The less far internet has to go, the faster it is.

it can have to do with the settings 100TB use

i got slow upload before because my connection was limited to 10mbit

it depends to if they use full duplex or not

if download/upload get shared (asymetric) then your speed goes down when some1 download

if it is not shared ( full dublex = symetric) then you keep max upload speed/download speed

then it depends on location and server load to
if your server load is high , then upload speed will be slow (as it use a fair amount of cpu to upload)

there are so many things that can prevent big speed uploads , but mainly it is 1 of those

  • limited connection
  • distance (high ping)
  • high cpu load

then the final limitation depends on your host , if you installed/configured your own server or that it was pre configured

in case it is pre configured is it possible that your host limited the connection with a certain script to prevent upload abusing

the best way to test it is by sitting behind your pc , upload the file you like
do the same test with your iphone and compare speeds

depends if you use 3G or wifi if the speed should be the same or a bit lower

for the rest it is hard to debug this kind of stuff if it can be a lot of differend things that limits the speed
but if other users are complaining , try to ask where they are coming from so you can see if it is a certain group or that it is from every where

here is my upload speed from belguim on your site
Upload speed: 346 KB/Sec
Time remaining: 2 seconds
