We use dropbox at work (Wellington CBD) and I get >2Mbps uploading to it.

I'd say their location and bandwidth is likely not the issue :) what connection are you on?

You're really going to have go provide some information if you want some help.

Without some simple basics like your connection type nobody is really in a position to help you.

Sorry it was all discussed in another thread.. I was looking for a fast connection to rent per hour or Per MB to upload large files one to two GB per file..

To cut a long story short ADSL is never going to cut it and VDSL will seemly have a bottle neck at the exchange wen the data joins the rest of the local data and grinds to a halt..

One extremely nice and VERY GENEROUS person (who is local to me) came to my rescue and has very kindly let me use/abuse there fiber connection when ever i need it!!  and WOW its fast. One day we will all have it and i cant wait!!

thanks for your help but for now... there is no realistic way of getting fiber to the door.

Your assumptions are totally without basis.

There are never bottlenecks at the exchange, or infact any part of the Telecom Wholesale network. Bottlenecks occur if ISP's don't provision enough handover, national, or international capacity.  VDSL2 has a virtually guaranteed 10Mbps upstream and there is no reason why any real world end users won't get that to their ISP - what happens then depends entirely on your ISP.

VDSL2 is 10mbps upstream and extremely stable. I don't know what you are talking about quite frankly, we have 2x VDSL2 connections and they always go line speed to our ISP.

What is your defintion of "stable"? I know a number of people who have had VDSL2 connections for around a year now. if you're so close why don't you sign up to it? There are numerous ISP's offering the service commercially.

I'd go as far as saying that people telling you this clearly aren't using the product themselves, and probably should take a look rather than spreading myths.

VDSL2's only limitation is Chorus' strict attenuation targets, which are essential to ensure performance targets are met. Management of power levels is essential to deliver optimum performance.

We are using Unleash. They aren't the cheapest but are very flexible in terms of virtually every usage plan is bespoke (as well as options for bandwidth based rather than usage pricing).

Others you could look at are:
- Xtreme Networks
- Snap
- Worldnet
