Transfer Speeds From VPS to S3 Slow - Maxing out at 250 kB/s

    I'm SUPER excited to start leveraging S3 for my backups of my VPS, but I'm running into a snag.

    I'm in PuTTy and transferring files with s3cmd to S3. Each transfer maxes out at 250 kB/s, but if I open another PuTTy session I can get another file to upload also at 250 kB/s.

    So, I'm able to get multiple threads running at a combined speed that is pretty decent, but I'm wondering why individual threads seem to be limited to 250 kB/s?

    My VPS NOC said:
    "Nothing is put in place on our side to limit transfer speeds. If this is indeed being throttled, it's being done either in the application or software itself, or on the receiving end."

    Any help to get my transfer speeds increased will be GREATLY appreciated!

    s3cmd itself doesn't do any rate limiting either.
