Uploading to my droplet seems very slow

Hello. I do something like this:
sshfs root@myAddress:/otherfs
cd otherfs/home/myApp
git pull myLocalRepo ./myApp

And this works terribly slow. (5kb/second)
How can I speedup my process of uploading app ?

sshfs is almost always slow. A couple things to consider:

1.) Are the two droplets in the same data center. The further the droplets are from each other, the slower the connection may be.

2.) If they are in the same region, you should perform a traceroute or MTR between the droplets and submit this information to our support team so they can investigate.
