I would first confirm that my thesis is correct as otherwise you might be
looking for another solution.

But if you have a too short timeout set, then I'd advice you to do one or more
of the following (and really, you didn't need me to write any of these you

    different networks and upload sizes

3. Send less data, possibly by compressing it first

4. Increase the fixed timeout value
