I recently did a large backup of some very large files (most between 2GiB and 5GiB) totaling around 2.4TiB to a Spaces bucket. The upload went smooth enough using s3cmd and completed overnight. When doing a test download (again using s3cmd) I am noticing that the transfers seem to cap out at around 250-300mbps. These are transfers across the Internet and not to any Droplet. I was wondering if there is any traffic shaping or other limitations to throughput from Spaces across the Internet?
