Tedious Process When Uploading Large Files to Dropbox
Downloading files will always be much faster than initially uploading large volumes of folders/files to your Dropbox account. That's because most of the Internet Service Provider's upload speeds are always much slower than the download speed.
For example, we have 15 MB download but only 512 Kbps upload (our upload rate is only 1/30th of our available download speed). That's the main reason why uploading 5 GB or more of folders/files is horrendously slow.
Tips For Uploading Large Files
- Connect your computer with an Ethernet cable vs WiFi connection (it's minimal but still helpful).
- If you're connecting your computer through a WiFi connection, then shut off WiFi to your other devices (eg: phones, tablets and other computers).
- Don't upload files from multiple devices at the same time.
- Don't use your internet connection for anything else while uploading (eg: surfing, VOIP calls, Skype, Roku streaming, etc).
