Thanks for the prompt reply! I wasn't expecting to hear anything back until next week. I have used several different connections, 4G, public wifi and cable internet here in the U.S. the upload I am running now appears to have improved, I am at 109 of 205 images in the past 1 hour over a tethered 4G LTE cellphone. when the images are done uploading I will try a few speed tests to determine the speeds at this location.
Thanks again for your prompt reply and providing some alternative options.
