Upload speed

The easiest method to limit your upload speeds on a computer is with a third-party application to limit network transfer rates. Below are examples of software programs designed to limit the upload speed.

We also recommend you check the program serving the files for an upload setting that can be adjusted. Some programs that serve files to other computers may not set limits on uploads.

Network router

Finally, some network routers also have settings that can be adjusted to limit the amount of upload and download speed available for the router or per port. See router documentation to see if this is an available feature and how to set up this feature.
