Using PIA and upload speeds are very slow on mac
« on: October 18, 2016, 09:36:15 PM »
I am using PIA and download speeds are okay, they could be better. But my upload speeds are very bad. What can I do to correct this?
Thank you

You have to forward your ports.
Enable that feature in the PIA client. Their support will help you further.

Another important tip for using PIA is to ensure you've disabled uTP. In my experience PIA performs very poorly with uTP. In qBittorrent it can be found under the Preferences: Speed / Rate Limits Settings / Enable uTP Protocol

I used PIA with uTP with over 35MB/s speeds. :D I don't know. Router/networking also matters I think.
