Is the 15 sec delay constant in uploading the data to the server. Why does it cannot be uploaded instantly without any delay. I am using NodeMCU to upload data online but the requirement is that the data has to be processed and visualized instantly.


Kindly help.

The free offering offers an update interval limit of 15 seconds. Data sent faster than that will be dropped.  For your application, you need the one second update interval which is only available with a paid license. See this page on ThingSpeak Licenses for more information about the paid license options.

The MQTT API or the client post method seen in the soil monitor example may offer some small speed improvements.
