Why is it almost orders of magnitude faster to download from the NSW Australia steam server than a local steam server in Auckland when I live in Auckland?
I think I've tried almost every NZ Steam server in the country to try and find a local one that's fast! It makes sense to use a local one to conserve international bandwidth but I'm not going to do that if it's slower than a server in another country.
Has anyone else played around with the different servers? If you haven't maybe you should because there's one in NSW that's a LOT faster!
NSW server just updated Garry's Mod at 5MB a second sustained speed, only choked by the wifi connection. Tried NZ servers on multiple occasions to see if they've sped up, 500-800KB/s -_- hopeless by comparison.
