    I have a normal home BB connection which I understand is 512 down and 256 up
    and am having problems with 'timeouts' trying to upload photos and word docs
    to my web site

    My web hosting company say:

    "If the upload takes more than 15 secs then it will "timeout or 2mb in size
    max for file"

    Clearly 2mb will only upload with a very fast connection but what do you
    think should be the maximum file size I can expect to upload in 15 seconds?

    I really doubt that this is the case, it's someone who doesn't understand
    the facts.
    2Mb/15 = 150K/second (about).
    For a 256Kbit uplink, like most people on ADSL, you're looking at about
    30K*15 = 460K.

    Is it a FTP upload?

    Thats a Webbased FTP upload are you using cpanel?

    My customers all use Cpanel or FTP you can use a FTP client like WSFTP etc
    to connect to your site, but there should be no timeouts, I dont understand
    why you keep getting timeouts.

    If your webhosting is held in the USA and you are in the UK you may find you
    have some trouble uploading at certain times of the day, and there is some
    latency issues with uploading using webbased FTP, so maybe look into a
    company using UK hosting.

    If you want me to have a look for you give me a shout,
    or visit you can contact me from there.
