Hi there,

 

I'm looking to do some stats and just wondering if anyone can lend their internet connection for a moment to do a few international speed tests on a gigabit residential plan.

 

Server 1: Vodafone, Auckland

 

Server 2: Windstream, Los Angeles, CA

 

Server 3: Spectrum, Los Angeles, CA

 

Server 4: Telstra, Sydney

 

Server 5: MyRepublic, Singapore (this one is interesting, 2degrees seems to route via the US)

 

 

 

Thanks in advance!

I think there's some routing issues going on recently, I've noticed Overwatch servers have been 200MS to Sydney for me.

There was a planned maintenance on one of the fibres between NZ and AU a couple of days ago, but should be back to normal by now...

Interesting topic. These two ISPs seem to be the "for geeks, by geeks" recommendations around here.

 

There are a number of variables that could influence the results. These are the ones I'm in control of:
The test machine is running Windows 10. Browser is Chrome. Connection is wired (Intel i219 NIC). TCP congestion control is CUBIC (the default) - a Linux machine using BBR would probably give higher upload rates for the longer links.
The router is OpenWRT x86 (on an Intel i3-7100U with i211 NICs). MTU for the PPP session is 1508 bytes. CAKE rate limits are set to 920,000 kbit/s down and 550,000 kbit/s up. Setting the upload limit seems to consistently get me a higher upload rate - not sure why exactly, but it might be due to the way that limiter "paces" the packets onto the link. I'm using a download limit to cap latency to nearest hop at 5 ms under load, and setting "nat dual-dsthost ingress" does a great job of sharing the link fairly between hosts.
Connection is 2degrees gigabit home/residential in Wellington. Don't know if it makes a difference, but I pay for a static IP.

 

Results:
Vodafone, Auckland: 250.75 Mbit/s down, 516.56 Mbit/s up, 14 ms
Windstream, Los Angeles, CA: 535.61 Mbit/s down, 100.97 Mbit/s up, 116 ms
Spectrum, Los Angeles, CA: 483.61 Mbit/s down, 49.49 Mbit/s up, 168 ms
Telstra, Sydney: 862.43 Mbit/s down, 500.97 Mbit/s up, 160 ms
MyRepublic, Singapore: 277.32 Mbit/s down, 69.90 Mbit/s up, 327 ms

 

And a couple of bonus results, going via WIX and auckland.megaport.com (APE?):
Xtreme Networks, Wellington: 868.60 Mbit/s down, 520.10 Mbit/s up, 2 ms
Voyager Internet, Auckland: 863.92 Mbit/s down, 518.84 Mbit/s up, 12 ms

 

@amanzi - is your connection 200/20? Anyone on Voyager with a gigabit link?

Just as another data-point, here are four tests to NFOrce Entertainment BV in Amsterdam. All within a few of minutes of each other:

 

231.69 Mbit/s down, 49.41 Mbit/s up, 273 ms
93.64 Mbit/s down, 76.43 Mbit/s up, 273 ms
21.89 Mbit/s down, 40.50 Mbit/s up, 273 ms
168.30 Mbit/s down, 64.54 Mbit/s up, 273 ms

 

The large variability in these results probably isn't due to links under heavy load. As connections get longer, minor packet losses (which are normal) start to make a big difference in how much throughput any single connection can actually achieve. Doubly so when speedtest.net barely runs long enough for TCP connections this long to get out of slow start.

 

The server for those four tests is mirror.nforce.com, and it hosts some speed test files: https://mirror.nforce.com/pub/speedtests/
Using a download manager and 30 connections I get a sustained speed of around 320 Mbit/s. I've got a dedicated server in Amsterdam with Online.net. Their network probably isn't as good as NFOrce's, but I'll always get at least 240 MBit/s using 30 connections.
