  1. Hi Ken Deng,
    I have just subscribed to Baidu SVIP and download speed is excellent 3MB/s but upload is slower than dial-up. I am getting 20KB/s to 100KB/s on rare occasions it managed to to 300KB/s. most time is less than 100KB/s. Have I missed out something? I also have Weiyun and it is excellent both upload and download. I thought it would be a second backup on another cloud storage.
    Any tips will be much appreciated.

      1. That was what I have just subscribed to – SVIP. The problem I faced was the upload speed was slower than dial-up. Do you face the same problem with Baidu SVIP account?
