PhantomNVD: 7...20...20...11...19 sequential results locally,

Consistent 10 for "US East" via VPN, but
12 for "UK London" via same VPN?

So about half speed for international than local

(On skinny broadband)

If they are from the speedtest, and you're running a VPN, you should _ignore_ the results. You're probably connecting to a server that was never designed to provide traffic to you so might not be well connected by design.

Actually, I was specifically posting the VPN results (and listing them as such) to demonstrate the 1/2 speed factor it induced. I actually value the 'fast' reading more via VPN, as this is how most of my streaming happens too :)
