Thanks, man! No, I was at work in NY and uploading a giant file I needed to transfer to my wife. (Oops, did I say that... No, I was a uploading a giant file I wanted to host for my family web site!). We have a 100 mbs symmetric connection at work and I've been able to get 20-30mbit upload speeds to nearby servers in speed tests.
That's exactly what I was seeing! Have you taken a look at what goes on when you zoom? It's easy to top out the connection capacity of the server - particularly if your users have the "number of simultaneous connections allowed" hacked to some high number.
