Upload speed problem (3 posts)

    First of all, I've been a proud owner of Fetch for many years, and I definitely wouldn't want to replace it.

    I have to upload large video files to ftp servers frequently and I've come to notice that Fetch's speed is kind of stuck to a maximum of about 5.2 to 5.7MB/s, whereas FileZilla —sigh— reaches up to 13.5-13.7 MB/s (1K=1024bytes).
    The comparison was tested on a connection to the same remote server and the same file (14GB).

    I'm connected via Ethernet cable and the upload connection speed here is 297 Mbps (37.125 MB/s).
    MacBookPro9,1, macOS 10.15.7, Fetch 5.8.2 (5K1354, Web Store).

    What could be the problem?

    My guess is that FileZilla is better tuned for fast uploads.

    Hi Jim,

    I'm unaware of the possible technical reasons, and I understand further details might be too long and unexciting to be explored on a message board. Thank you for your reply.
    Fetch is still my choice.

    Kind Regards,
