Deliver my file as fast as uploading

If your upload speed is not capped by your ISP (very unusual!)
Check the specifications of your cable modem. It may limit your upload rate on it's own.

Also, check the data for the site you are sending the data to. They may have a limit, or a hub in-between you and them may be limiting the transfer.

Go to one of the speed test sites and check your bandwidth. 2 bits says the download will be 1.2 to 1.5 kbps and upload will be 200 to 300 kbps.

check for spaces after copy and paste

Next open a dos window and at a command prompt type: tracert
where is the site you are trying to download from. Like tracert

You will get a time stamp for every active addressed device or site you have to pass through.

A busy device like a router in Atlanta might be having problems or traffic could just be vicious .

Do the tracert several times and compare the times.

Good Luck Lee
