The PegMedia Server has high bandwidth and can support multiple connections from many users.
Uploads usually occur at close to the maximum current bandwidth of the client's broadband connection.

Most good FTP clients allow you to configure the number of simultaneous download and upload connections. The optimum number to limit is one download and one upload. Also, most clients allow you to queue up a list of files for upload so you can be away from your machine overnight or for several hours and files will automatically be downloaded.
