Beginning on April 28, 2010, the FTP upload speed to has dropped to extremely low speed.
The upload speed varies from 40kbps to 50kbps and does not go higher.
This has happened repeatedly over the last week.

(My other websites and (both on Yahoo Webhosting) do not have
this problem with low upload speed.)

Is this to discourage uploads?

If the upload speed has a "cap", "lock" or "limit", please remove and
restore site to previous settings.

Please resolve and email me at  .
Thank you.

Hello Alan,
Thank you for contacting Yahoo! Small Business Support.
As I understand your are experiencing slow FTP upload speeds.
Please note that I have examined your account and it looks like you
have uploaded a lot of mp3 files that have taken up a considerable amount
of your disk space. In order to improve your FTP speeds I would request
you to clear a few of your files and reduce your disk space usage.
Please refer link below for more information about disk space usage.

Please do not hesitate to reply if you need further assistance.

Hello Randhir,  I went through this with Yahoo last year.  I pay for
unlimited disk space and I am not going to remove files to increase
speed, since I have paid for unlimited.  'Unlimited' means all the disk
space that I need for my FTP uploads without a 'cap', 'lock' or 'limit' to slow my
speed.  I do not want to go through the weeks of complaints, phone calls
and mystification on Yahoo's end only to eventually get the unlimited disk
space and accompanying speed that I pay for, so please go into my account
and remedy this as you did last year.
