Quoting this post since he seems to think my servers are slow.

Here is a direct screen capture from his previous VPS with me that I brought back online for testing purposes. I have downloaded the same 100mb.bin test file from the VPS node itself, as well as from a server at a completely different geographical location:



Keep in mind, his 1.7 mbps comment here. Since he likes to post in megaBITS per second, rather than megaBYTES per second, let me throw down a little math lesson for comparison purposes. 1 megabyte equals 8 megabits, therefore, your claim of 1.7 (megabits per second) = 0.2125 megabytes per second.... less than a quarter megabyte per second??? GET REAL!

First download from 'Jupiter' which is located in a completely different data center in Houston Texas:
5.29 megabytes per second average = 42.32 megabits per second average

Second download from 'Saturn' which is the VPS node itself that his unit was on in Dallas Texas:
6.70 megabytes per second average = 53.60 megabits per second average

This is certainly a far cry from his 1.7 mbps claim.

The other guys performed a direct server to server transfer and got approx 11 MB per second. Shown here and here.

Had they downloaded directly from his VPS itself, I would also expect around 6 to 7 MB per second vs 11.

Anything else? Want me to install IIS on his XP VPS and give that a try? ^

i did the tests with 2 servers on speedtest.net

Yeah, because a flash based test in a virtual environment does really well.

Funny thing with speedtest.net on remote desktop -- it always gives MUCH better results with the RDP window minimized...

A lot of it depends on what connection you're on too Logan, and at what speed your ISP has you capped. You're trying to download the file to your home computer. You don't have a full duplex 100mbps connection or else everybody would be running their own servers at home.

Looks blazing fast to me. Quick download speeds, low ping times.

Pulling the 100mb from one of my own on Softlayer in Dallas Texas. It is getting a roughly .4ms ping to that VPS and maybe 3-4 hops in between. I wouldn't doubt it's entirely softlayer the whole way.

Here's the same test done from my California machine. This one is around 15 hops away and gets about 36ms pings, most of which comes from above.net according to mtr.

-Nearly- as good, I should consider moving that machine to cleaner bandwidth though because above.net has a tendency to get high jitter and congestion during peak hours.


Odds are his problem was entirely too many emulation layers bogging it way down. I talk to people in the UK all the time, and they tell me that all they ever see is some additional latency over what Americans get for the same American servers. The connection speed itself is as good if not better than any comparable service provider would have.

Here's a speed test from one of our UK servers based in Spectrum House (RapidSwitch).
