cPanel file manager uploads are very slow and the upload bar is going faster up to 40% and decreasing to 2 or 3% suddenly

Server load is normal

how to fix this

Hey hey! There isn't any type of speed limits on the File Manager tool. Are you seeing similar slowness when using FTP directly?
Yes in FTP too

Thanks for the additional details. If the FTP service is also slow then it would seem the issue isn't with the cPanel tools or File Manager, but with an overall upload speed problem to the machine. You may want to have that hosting provider check the network to make sure there is no issues, but this doesn't seem like an issue that will be able to be resolved using any cPanel tools.

I have the same issue.
For a file size of 192MB, which is not very big by any standard,
If I use terminal I can upload file in about 30seconds
If I use FTP / file manager upload it takes over 30 min

Please tell why

The Problem is not from Any Side. Its the actual Internet Connection Speed(Fiber Line between Server and Client).
In My Instance, I have a 10Gbps Bare Metal Server and a 1Gbps line in My Office. But the Server Location is Germany and Workplace is in India. Even when the Server Speed is 10Gbps, I get a Maximum upload variance of around 300KB/s - 350KB/s. This is due to Connection line between Datacenter and ISP which is this only per connection. So, That applies to your situation too.

If You want a Total Max. upload speed of Server, You need to be on the Same Network or Near the Datacenter. And as you said, There isn't anything that Terminal(SSH sFTP) can upload in 30sec and FTP Upload the same in 30 min.

You can Check your Speed by Installing Speedtest CLI on your cPanel/WHM Server. Then Select the Near about ISP of your city and see yourself about the Connection speed actually offered.
