    My internet speed now is

    1.52megabits per second

    I am trying to upload a file into my server it is very very slow

    Right now I am uploading at 4.0KB/S:confused:

    35 MB of file and it is already 3 hours

    downloading is fine uploading is just painful.
    I think I have to keep my computer on and go to bed. LOL

    It shouldn't be normal... do you get this when uploading on other websites?

    If you aren't easily able to test this elsewhere, go to a file hosting website (or similar), and try uploading a 1 MB file there and see how quickly it occurs.

    You said you have a 1.52Mbps connection but is that symmetrical? Most all connections are not they asymmetrical meaning that the upload is less than the download.

    Although, 4kb is far slower than I would expect to see. Have you done a trace route to your server? Could be a bad switch along the way or something.

    I get 6 times that speed on my 256k connection, like TristanPerry said check your upload speed with another site and if it is a lot faster than open a ticket.
