BSN API Test Account is slow

I have a 30 day trial test account setup for BSN.

I can successfully connect to the WS-* endpoint and the calls all work fine, however each call takes 5-15 seconds.

This is particularly a problem when trying to upload an 8MB file in chunks of 256kib.

Is the test account throttled or limited in some way?

Or are these speeds normal?

    I'm having a similar issue, slow uploads.  I'm also curious if the uploads are throttled on the trial accounts.

    My issue was down to using wsHttpBinding. I changed to using basicHttpBinding and it was much faster.

    I'm more of a basic tech guy,  I'm not qualified to be a fully credentialed IT guy,  I'm doing some simple upload tests using the both BrightAuthor and the WebUI. 

    My internet connection up and down is 300 Mbps.  Uploading a 3 Gb project to the BSN takes around an hour.  Downloading the same project takes less than three minutes.    I don't understand the discrepancy in the data transfer times.  I've tested on the corporate lan and at home.  The slow uploads appear to be on the Brightsign end.  Odd.
