I'm on a Mac and I was trying to upload some files and it was giving an ETA that was fluctuating between 1 hour and 3 hours per file. I took the same files into WeTransfer and the upload estimated 15 minutes for all 3 files. REALLY frustrating to pay a premium for DropBox and have the free service of WeTransfer blow them out of the water speed-wise. I really hope Dropbox looks into this seriously. I will have to seek another option if it persists.
So I have to confess that I found the source of my problems. I found that I was experiencing slower internet upload speeds on other sites as well. I did a factory reset on my modem/router, reconfigured my internet service provider information in the modem/router, and now have much higher upload speeds. This action solved my issue with dropbox as well. Thank you all for your inputs.
Just finished typing a response to dropbox support. They keep wanting to blame firewalls and networks. Here's how I see it, as simply as I can put it:
If, under a particular OS, program A uploads a file to dropbox.com at speed X, and program B uploads the same file to dropbox.com at speed .1X, the fault has something to do with Progam B.
Is my logic wrong?
