Slow Transfer Speed To Google Drive From PC

What is the problem you are having with rclone?

Only 600 kBytes/s w around 8mbp/s upload on all speed test. Using the command listed below and no luck increasing upload speed. Trying to upload 4k60fps videos from my GoPro and it's very slow even compared to Googles Web Interface.
If anyone can help me figure out how to set up faster upload speeds I WILL compensate you. I need this for a trip to Colorado and want to be able to setup Rclone on a PC available at the Airbnb and upload my footage I took that day. Going to be storing around 1TB by the time I am done with my trip.

If I cannot figure this out my only other option is to buy a bunch of other microsd's or buy a mobile storage bank w mobile upload. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What is your rclone version (output from rclone version)

1.52

Which OS you are using and how many bits (eg Windows 7, 64 bit)

Windows 10 64Bit

Which cloud storage system are you using? (eg Google Drive)

Google Drive

The command you were trying to run (eg rclone copy /tmp remote:tmp)

rclone copy Upload gdrive: -v --stats 20s --drive-chunk-size 64M (been messing around w this drive chunk command trying variables between 32M 64M 128m 256M & 1G. No luck with any.

The rclone config contents with secrets removed.

Trying increasing your transfers and chunk size:

--transfer 8 --drive-chunk-size 128M

Note: This will take 1.1GB of memory.

Web UI is faster by about 30 min. Limitations shouldn't be an issue as I'm not uploading many small files I did try increasing transfers anyways all it did was soread out my bandwidth over more files same results in the end w upload time. I'm uploading 31 videos all in 4k so minimum file size per video is at least 250mb. I tried increasing --drive-chunk-size using variables from 32M, 64M, 128M, 256M & 1G all the same transfer speed.

I also tried using a vpn and connecting to different locations which did not help either. Also set my DNS to google public DNS server 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 .
I was atleast hoping to get 2-3mbps out of rclone. My upload with rclone currently only peaks around 750 and tapers down from there. My actual download upload speeds are 100/10 w an average of 8 upload to my ISP.

No luck as I've tried increasing transfers and drive chunk size with no luck. For drive chunk I tried variablese from 32M, 64M, 128M, 256M, & 1G all of which didn't change anything sadly.

The problem is with your ISP.

Most likely bad peering to that specific Google server. Some solutions would be: trying out a VPN, using a different ISP or blocking the IPs of the Google servers that have poor peering. As an example, on my server, Google server 216.58.200.74 has terrible peering, whereas Google server 216.58.214.10 has great peering. Both servers are in the same location in the US. I only achieve 100Mb/s upload on servers with crap peering and 500Mb/s on servers with good peering. I use a packet monitor to detect the server IPs I'm uploading to and block the IP's of servers that are subpar.
