    When I upload a mix at home usually takes at least an hour, depending on how long it is.

    I just uploaded a mix at work. This took 6mins @ 250kbps... It actually uploaded faster than I was able to download from sendspace.com

    What gives? How can you get a faster upload speed?

    Your work probably just has really fast broadband speeds. It'd need to really if its a business. I'm guessing that you have more than one machine online?
    You also have to take into account that your net at home might be a bit slower due to the proximity that your house may be from the exchange.

    i think it is dependant on broadband speed at said address and the type on line used... i imagine a business would have a faster line than home. Upload is normally slower than download (by a considerable amount).

    Yeah there is probably over 100 pc's networked on the server here. Plus somehow its routed through Detroit... I can't get the bbc Iplayer because it thinks im in america, but I can get the american equivilants.. with new family guy and simpsons :D

    So basically I aint gonna have a chance at home to get that sort of speed?

    I've got a 110 MB / 5 MB line :gslayer:

    Sure it's 55 EUR a month, but that's not much since I share it with 2 flatmates.
