Hey there @mdshea
 
Initially, please bear in mind that Dropbox can only upload and download as fast as your ISP allows. 
 
If you add content through the website, please note that each file or folder must be 50 GB or smaller. For larger files or folders, you can use the desktop or mobile apps, which don’t have a size limit.
 
Finally, if you’d like to change the bandwidth settings in the desktop app, you can do so by following the steps outlined here - although setting your Upload to “Don't Limit” or a higher number than your connection is capable of will likely cause all other Internet activity on your network to slow significantly.
 
I hope this helps!
