Slow Upload (4 posts)

I am running Panther on a G5 and the upload speed seems slower than just yesterday, before I paid the $25. Maybe that's it?
I am currently putting a 77mb and 53mb files. Initiall, the Time Left was over 2 hours on both and the transfer rate is around 7ooo bytes/sec for both. I am on a cable with good though unknown speed. Yesterday, as mentioned above, the actual time to transfer files of this size seemed significantly shorter though I co not have the figures.
Maybe because I am moving two files at once? I wouldn't think the speed would slow by more than 2x at that rate.

Your throughput on a cable modem depends on a number of factors not under your control, such as how much your neighbors are using their cable modem connections at the time. You should expect throughput to vary from day to day and hour to hour. Uploading two files at once may be slower than uploading them sequentially, because the system has to jump back and forth between the two transfers.
I checked my upload speed and found 1.8MB/sec and currently the same file that I was trying to send yesterday is creaping along at 2503 bytes/s. This 53mb file is literally taking all day to upload and I can't figure it out.
Was there something in preferences that I might have inadvertantly changed?
Problem solved. Charter's server dropped provisions on my account by mistake and my connection speed died independant of this wonderful piece of code.
Thanks Jim for listening.
