quakeguy: (Cross post, but) try downloading http://speedtest.fremont.linode.com/100MB-fremont.bin and see how fast you get - Snap has a ton of international capacity, which should be performing really well! For some reason, Speedtest.net is allocating a very small test file when testing to USA, and so it's not getting up to speed before the test finishes.


~ 1.33 MB/sec (10.68Mbits/sec) Nothing else at the time downloading.

Which OS is that on? Windows, Mac OS?

Still not really where I'd expect it to be sitting, given I'm on the 200/50 plan...I genuinely don't think it has anything to do with TCP ramping speed.

Ah - 200/50 - we're working on a couple of things for the 200/50 users. I can't give a full update at the sec, but there will be something soon. Stay tuned!

heres a transfer from my dedi in NL, for the time of day, about 4MB/s is pretty normal (on a 55/10 vdsl connection, 4MB/s i feel is pretty dam good for a server 300MS away.)



FTP transfer, so not quite http like the linode test, but regardless, by the end of the transfer.

Response: 226 209.997 seconds (measured here), 4.26 Mbytes per second
Status: File transfer successful, transferred 938,475,520 bytes in 212 seconds

for a comparison of why i say its time of day ramp ups, here is a file earlier today (about 2.20pm)



thats from the same server, single threaded FTP connection yet again. ramp is slightly different there.


now hes the linode file, averaging about 1.8MB/s peaking at 4.1MB/s


put simply TCP/IP is a bit of a pain with the way it scales sometimes..

To fix international bandwidth, or the disconnect issue? Never mind - I'll be happy with either one of them fixed!

Hi mate,

Do you want to PM me your username, and I can make sure everything is okay on this end - my VDSL seems to beat the speeds you've given there, and there are absolutely no bandwidth pools or restrictions at Snap, so I figure something is awry.

Cheers,
Tim

I'm adding my 2c to this. I'm also a 200/50 user. Over the last week or so performance has been terrible, particularly in the evening to the point of giving up and not using it as it's frustratingly slow with timeouts, sites not loading or loading very slowly (international worse than national), downloads stopping and starting. No changes made to my network or hardware.

It used to be blindingly fast day and night!
