Hi all,

Was just wondering what peoples uploads are like?

I've tried a few different targets - e.g. one drive, google photos, Mega and a home based webserver (to download from).

Doesn't seem to matter what I use, I can't get above 1-2 megabytes per second. Mega appears to flatline at 1.2 ish. One drive is under two. I think google photos is capped as it won't go above 400k/s (if I'm missing something there please tell me, I have loads of photos going up). My web server only manages about 1.3.

I know my machine could be the common thing here, but surely if the speed tests are hitting 400+ I should get a little more than 10-20megabit for uploads right?

would someone mind testing sending a dummy file or whatever to say Mega.co.nz and report back?

I want to say I smell something fishy, but I thought I'd check here first.

This is on a cabled connection too btw.

thanks!

First thought would be: What is your connection speed?

the last speed test to the MR ST server was about 500/300 MBit

Down speeds are good, 20+ meg/s on steam etc
