Does anyone know how long it takes to upload 300MB of data?

I have just copied a folder that contains 300MB of data (mostly pictures) into the Ubuntu One folder and I cannot see them when I login to one.ubuntu.com.

I have no limitation on the upload.

That sounds pretty decent to me.

Your gigabyte ethernet connection hasn't any real impact on the length of time it took though, it is the speed of your internet connection that matters, ie the service/speed level that you are paying from your Internet Service Provider along with related factors such as contention, the server you are connecting to ect ect.

Your dowload sppeed might be at 30 mbps, but you upload speed can still be on far less less then 1 mbps. It all depends on what speeds you pay for.

For future reference, you can (quickly) get a better number on your actual internet connection speed by using a site like http://www.speedtest.net/ or others that will perform a short download and upload test.
