Why is my transfer taking so long?

There are many factors that impact transfer speed. The 2 most major aspects are the sender's upload speed and the size of the files being sent.

If order to calculate the expected transfer time of your files with your specific connection, you must first test your connection's speed on http://www.speedtest.net/.

You can then enter your upload bandwidth and your file size on, http://techinternets.com/copy_calc (set overhead to 0%), in order to obtain your expected file transfer time.

You can also increase the performance of your WiFi network, particularly in crowded areas by changing its channel from a lower one like 2.4 GHz  to a 5 GHz channel. Check out the guide, http://engt.co/T6wSrU, to learn how.
