Is the Upload Speed of HiDrive Limited?

HiDrive does not limit the speed of uploading and downloading files but uses the bandwidth available on your Internet connection. In this article, we give you an overview of upload duration in HiDrive using a 100 MB file as the example.

Please Note

The upload speeds are significantly lower than the download speeds advertised by most Internet service providers. For this reason, uploading takes much longer than downloading.
