I have noticed that the ftp download speed on my server is rather slow.

For example, an 89MB file has taken over 20 minutes and seems to hang around 90kb sec.

I am on 300MB fibre connection so it cannot be anything to do with my connection.

Is there some kind of setting somewhere which has restricted download speeds?

I have full root access to the server.

Hello :)

cPanel does not limit the FTP download or upload speed. I suggest consulting with your data center to ensure there are no issues with FTP traffic to/from your server, or to check if they limit speeds on specific ports.

Thank you.
