Well, it took me about 2 hours to upload 10 mb of files to server via filezilla.
While I can download the same 10mb size data within 10 minutes. I have a pretty fast Internet connection.
Well, I have a default install of filezilla. Do I have to change some settings on Filezilla in order to make its transfers fast?
Downstream 213.3 Kbps ( = 0.2 Mbps )
Upstream 58.5 Kbps ( = 0.1 Mbps )
Usually even with a fast internet connection the upload speeds are very low. This is usually limited by the ISP providers for increasing the downstream speed. You can request your ISP to increase ur upload speed. Even I had done the same.
Hope it helps.
If you have ~58Kbps upload speed, its quite normal for an upload to take hours. Confirm your service plan and see what speeds are indicated by your ISP. Upstream is almost always, always, always, less than downstream speed.
Some servers stop uploading while yyour program uploading something, so Filezilla or another program establish the connection again and again, this takes a long time. I think your time is normal, it can be change by the server you use.
your upstream speed is not totally equals to your actual uploading speed. Factors like the server which you are uploading to can affect your speed as well. The server might have imposed a speed limit to reduce lags, which caused you to take a long time to upload. Similarly for downloading, some download sites impose speed limits and the number of "jets" (connections) too.
