I'm trying to stream to Twitch Aus (Sydney) server and am consistently getting atrociously low bitrates.

 

Doing a local (NZ) speedtest.net I get 100/20 - no problem. Doing a speed test to a Sydney server I get something like 40/1.2 during evening times.

 

Is there usually such a significant difference international traffic vs local?

 

What sort of tests should I do to try and find the source of the low upload rate?

 

 

 

Alternatively - what sort of settings are people using to stream to twitch sydney server?

Problem solved with a power cycle of the modem and router.

 

 

 

getting 100/20+ locally, 100/20 to Sydney and was quite happily streaming at 6000 kbs last night.

 

 

 

No idea what caused the issue, but the good old "turn it off and turn it on again" saved the day.
