    I tested at 10mps download and 2 mps upload but only getting around 28kbs transfer speed with Fetch 5.7.3 what the problem.

    Also Hosting company has no throttles on speed.

    Hi,

    Fetch generally transfers data as quickly as the Internet connection and server allow. After uploading a big file could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents?

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    You are uploading a lot of very small files, so Fetch is spending most of its time setting up and tearing down each transfer, and not much time actually transferring file contents. You'll see performance that's closer to the maximum speed of your connection if you upload a single big file (which is what speed test websites do).

    I should also note that Fetch reports speeds in bytes per second, while speed test websites use bits per second. There are 8 bits in a byte, so 2Mbit/s is equal to about 250KByte/s.

    Thanks,

    Hi there. Fetch is very slow. Speeds are varying from 250 KB/s to 400 KB/s. IO normally average a solid 600+ KB/s. What gives? Filezilla is transfering at normal rates on same computer.

    Are you transferring more than one file at a time? Fetch measures transfer rates across all the files you transfer, so the speed includes waiting time between files. FileZilla may not use the same calculation. You could do an apples-to-apples comparison by using a stopwatch and transferring the same file or bunch of files a few times. Network congestion can affect transfer times, so you can expect rates to vary some between attempts.

    Thanks,

    No. Just's one file at a time larger though maybe 4 to 500 MB.
