I have a performance issue when I am uploading files to a web server
outside of our company proxy. Our company has two proxy: proxy1 and
proxy2. I use Speakeasy.net to test the internet connection speed:

proxy1 shows:
Download Speed: 126807 kbps (15850.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 48980 kbps (6122.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

proxy2 shows:
Download Speed: 217786 kbps (27223.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 71458 kbps (8932.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

It looks like proxy2 has better connection than proxy1.

However, when I tried to upload 650MB file to a web server outside of
our company proxy. It takes 5 minutes to upload the file via proxy1.
However, it takes more than 1 hour to upload the same file via proxy2.

How to explain this?

thanks,
John
