Values are getting updated every 15 seconds in thingspeak. How do I lower this time?

I am sending many values from my python side and I am also getting http response that requests are going but every 15-18 secs only one value at random is being selected and is being shown in my thingspeak graph. How do I lower this time ?

I guess you are using the free tier of thingspeak which is limited to one update every 15 seconds. For faster updates, you'll need to upgrade to a paid-for tier. For example How to Buy - Academic License - ThingSpeak IoT

Also note that if your license allows you to update a channel once every 15s and you are knowingly wasting resources by having a python script bombard the servers with requests at a much higher rate, it can be considered abuse of terms of service.
Please put in the appropriate delay/sleep in your python code to be in compliance with the limits of your license type.
