The limit we have on our free no-account required service is that you can upload any number of files, but they can't be more than 5 GB in total, per upload session. You can have 2 upload sessions in 24 hours. All our paid plans permit you unlimited upload sessions, and you can upload big files of any size.

How to upload faster?

Uploading via a browser is TCP-based, which can be slower than you would like. It only uses a fraction of your speed and is influenced by traffic conditions, and other users sharing the connection. If you want faster transfer speeds, we recommend you use our UDP based desktop solution. It’s blistering fast.
