Slow upload speed

Slow upload speed

Hi I have just opened a personal account and the upload speed of my files is INCREDIBLY slow.

I have tried everything from ticking No limits to rebooting wifi, Mac updating desktop software. I have download speed 50mb and upload speed 10mb, so this shoudn't be an issue. I have about 1.5tb of files I need to back up which I am doing slowly but its taking days. Help! Sarah

Hey, @Sarah Ritchie, welcome to our community! 

Sorry to hear about that. Here’s some things to check: 

- Do other computers that are using the same internet connection have this issue? 

- Have a look at any security app, firewall, VPN, etc. that may be interfering with connection to our servers. 

- You may also try contacting your ISP (internet service provider) so see if the issue is with them. They may throttle bandwidth to services like ours.

Let me know how it goes!
