Recently I have noticed when I attempt to upload a video file to my website while tethered to my iPhone, the upload will run really fast for a few seconds, then roll back to being so slow that it has effectively stopped.
If I cancel the upload and start again, the same thing occurs, a burst of upload, and then slows down to nothing.
Here is an example of what it normally looks like:

This never used to be a problem, has something changed on the optus side? I think I might need to switch phone providers.
Not that I'm aware of, Zadok.
How long has this issue been happening?
Have you contacted Optus technical support?
Can you test with another provider SIM?
Hi @Zadok ,
AFAIK Optus generally doesn't throttle. However with transfers in general most progress bars start with an optimistic number that can drop off significantly in a few seconds.
While not rulling out Optus I would check:
1) The phone - can you put your SIM in a mates phone and try a transfer
2) Optus - Borrow a mates SIM (or grab a $2 prepaid one) and test that in your phone
3) The website - There could be issues with the upload speed to the site itself?
