A speed test to Auckland shows nothing since its not constrained by slingshots under provisioned international.
Also, with slingshot employing a DPI rate limiter a speed test proves nothing since they give them high priority compared to large http/torrent traffic.
All these people posting speedtests saying they have no problem is annoying.
Jump on a torrent site and show more than 30kB/sec from international peers and then you can say there is no problem. Or show your premium rapidshare account going at a couple of 100kB/sec - thats also no problem, although less than it should be, 8kB/sec is a problem, and that is what I see off RS, which is why I have not renewed it.
