On Telecom 30/10 plan. Getting variable between 100kb and 200kb. A couple of weeks ago I was getting 500kb. This is to a seedbox off shore.

Seems it shouldn't be like this - get there are all kinds of variables in here but still..... Running a TG587nv3.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Mark

Any specific FTP sites or tests I could try to run to compare? I'm on Snap's UFB.

Little k/b (bit) or big KB? (Bytes)
To servers in europe, unless you do multi-segment downloads, you'll not get anywhere close to 30mbit/s.

But yes, there are lots of variables, including how much of the seedboxes upstream is in use, what's between you and the seedbox, etcetc.

give cute ftp a go, on multiple threads (or lftp if your up to it).. generally your best bet to get the speeds up.. shared service or dedicated? depending on the access you have, might be able to make a few tweaks to help out.

ontop of that, ftp server can play a pretty big role, especially with cute, its got a habit of corrupting files on pure-ftpd/pro-ftpd, where as vsftpd is normally a lot better.


also, server itself under load? many variables there to look at.. generally your host should be able to allude to this, depending on how honest and transparent they are. with the hits to services on OVHs network, some hosts are trying to cram in what they can..
not all hosts are so helpful to say the least though..

ultimately, you're at distance to the server and thats a factor to work around.

certainly dont have issues myself to NL 8~10 threads is a reasonably sweat spot..

speed issues to home, is the second most common issue reported to the group i do support work for, first being speed issues when comparing directly OVH boxes to anything else..

Ok - I am using Smart FTP. Once I crank up same 4-5 downloads I can get back to 500KB/s in total. Each one only pulls 140 maybe peaking separately. Not sure what has changed re this from a couple of weeks ago when I could get that from one download. But feeling better. :-)

Maybe the route has changed and it has higher latency. Speeds per thread will drop drastically with higher latency.

Good call - I had to enter new URL so pretty sure that has been my issue.
