One problem you will only start to see now plan speeds are 100mbit+ is latency will affect total throughput when latency increase. Using more than one thread for the transfer will obviously increase total throughput speeds.

markhodgeNZ: Okay. I've asked them directly since it looks like not many people here are using MyRepublic in Dunedin and able to give me results. Will see what answers I get.


MyRepublic confirm they aren't rate limiting so we will test further tonight hopefully.

Glastnost test reports issues with some protocols but a very thorough p2p test last night was giving several mb/sec down, and I'm getting 10-12MB/sec off http://ucmirror.canterbury.ac.nz/linux/ubuntu/vivid/  for ubuntu ISOs (thanks k1w1k1d). These both seem reasonable. I suspect the former was improved by plugging directly into the router rather than via a gigabit switch as MyRepublic suggested, but don't expect that would make much difference to my HFS upload speed since it is to a single address.

Is anyone else aware of any good alternatives to HFS HTTP File Server I could try on Windows as well? I was getting similar poor performance with CoreFTP's free sftp server FWIW.

Cheers,
Mark

Indeed, and if traffic goes all the way from Dunedin up to Auckland then back down to Dunedin latency will be quite high for my use case frown

If both of you have public IP addresses though surely that traffic would be routed at the POP in Dunedin, rather than going up to the CGNAT equipment?

If I tracert his address I get:


  1    <1 ms    <1 ms    <1 ms  router.asus.com [10.1.1.1]
  2    31 ms    36 ms    31 ms  101-100-136-3.myrepublic.co.nz [101.100.136.3]
  3     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  4     *        *        *     Request timed out.
  5     *        *        *     Request timed out.
etc.

I read that as saying there is no POP in Dunedin?

Cheers,
Mark

Must be some sort of POP but looks like just Layer 2 i.e. no routing being done there

Well I can confirm that the performance is noticeably better after trying another cable directly plugged into the router - now 24MB/sec uploading with multiple threads, single thread still fairly modest but about 3-4 times faster than before.

Seems a bit odd since the ethernet switch in the mix easily does over 50MB/sec for local computer to computer traffic with the original cable but looks like the guy I spoke to at MyRepublic was on the ball.

In any case, I'm happy with the performance I'm now seeing.

Cheers,
Mark
