Is anyone else having a problem with upload speeds? I'm on the 15/5 plan, and my downloads are fine (over 14), but my uploads are at less below 2. This hasn't always been the case, but I started running a backup to an offsite server yesterday and the uploads are crawling along.


Verizon's speed test as well as speedtest.net giving the same answer, so it's not the servers on the other end of my backup that are the problem, and I've tested it on all 3 of our computers over both wireless and wired connections with the same results.


I used to get almost the full 5 upload speed. At this rate, the backup will take 3 weeks of 24/7 uploads. Anyone know what gives?
