      Can you upgrade your upload ?

      Thank you :slight_smile:

      it is not possible at the moment. with the provider probably not until July 2021

      I’m sorry but it’s probably too low :frowning:
      If your node can’t have the required bandwidth it’s slow down all other nodes. The team take the final decision if ok or not.

      50 mb upload residential line is to low indeed.
      Suggest to be back in July. Else it is a waste of time and resources. Even if approved his node will get rejected b the network.

      Hi Dave,
      I would like to see you join the project, but you really need to upgrade the upload speed to => 100Mbit/s.
      Can’t you change to another ISP or add a fibre connection?

      I think he wants to put it in the famous Hertzner dc.
      Be sure to add a GPU, because it is a REQUIREMENT. Otherwise you will have to many time-outs and you dont comply thus with the requirements.
