Slow upload speeds, despite being on a fast connection

I am trying to upload ~2.4GB of files, consisting of pictures, documents and other personal files. The rate at which it is uploading is extremely slow, I'm not even getting a time estimate from Windows. Yet it really shouldn't be slow given the connection I'm on. If I were to upload this same data to a VPS that I have, it would take probably no more than 20 minutes. At the rate it is currently running at, I wouldn't be surprised if it took 20 hours.

Is there a reason my uploads are so slow? I've experienced the problem from both the Mac and Windows clients. The connection I'm on is fast, I'm not sure of the exact speed, but I can easily get 1500k/sec upload to my VPS.
