Getting really slow upload speeds


Uploading at 90KB/sec speedtest says I should be able to do 1Mbps. Running Ubuntu 16.04 and my Belkin Modem has the latest firm ware. I changed from wireless and plugged in a cable to the modem it did not change the upload speed. I would appreciate any hearing any ideas on what I could do about this.

Depends on where you are uploading to. You won't necessarily see the same speeds as you are connecting to different servers for the speedtest and wherever you are uploading to

Thanks

This happens with ftp to my web sites and the PCloud and Spyder back up applications.

Have you always seen these speeds or has it dropped from what it used to be? You might check your router to see if there is any bandwidth throttling/limiting in effect

Nothing obvious on the router firmware is up to date. This the first time I tried to load 10 GB and it looks like it will take another 15 hours at this rate.

What is the command you are using for the transfer?

Is that your only option to transfer the files or can you try rsync?

Not sure rsync would work pCloud is proprietorial. When installed it shows up as a mounted drive.

Compare with
Code:
wget -O - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py | python
Up/Down
No subjectivity involved.

If it shows as mounted you should be able to. Do you know the mount point? Rsync syntax is fairly straightforward
Code:
rsync -rP /source /destination
The -r means recursive and P is for progress.

/home/jo
would that be the mount point? Thanks for your patience with a newbie to Ubuntu and Linux.
If rsync can connect to pCloud severs it still doesn't tell me where the bottleneck is with upload speed.

Assuming "jo" is your username on your computer, that would be your local home folder. Maybe you have a subdirectory in /home called /pCloud or something similar? I am not familiar with pCloud, but it seems to be basically any other cloud storage service which should allow you to rsync.

You are correct in that it won't find the bottleneck, but you may get faster transfer speeds

I really don't have the command line skills to run rsync
Oh yeah /home/jo/pCloud is the path.
So is that the mount point?
