Upload Speed: 3385 kbps (423.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 293 ms

Thanks for running the speedtest ScuL! Are you on Bigpipe's 200/200 plan?

My speeds have changed slightly since last night. I'm currently looking at this:
Download Speed: 33298 kbps (4162.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 5967 kbps (745.9 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 285 ms

It does vary a lot however. Maybe this test isn't good for comparisons... Oh well.

Speedtests have been weird.

So I ran a direct download from one of the test files (the 10GB one)

This is probably as high as I can go on my 200/20 Spark Unlimited Fibre.
Last Result:
Download Speed: 20141 kbps (2517.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 2054 kbps (256.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 279 ms

That OVH speedtest gives poor results regardless of the connection type. It's the problem trying to send content to the other side of the world.

sbiddle: That OVH speedtest gives poor results regardless of the connection type. It's the problem trying to send content to the other side of the world.


On Slingshot fibre, I used to get ~4Mb/s on Speedtest to the OVH server. Actual downloads were around 1.2MB/s (with a single thread) from a server supposedly in the same datacenter. With 10 connections, I'd be able to max out the 100Mb/s port on the server.
