Hello gents,

May I ask you to download the file at http://fry.snap.net.nz/testfile-100mb and let me know the speed at which it transfers?

I'll be phoning and testing this one-on-one with a few users, but for anyone I miss, please give it a whirl. I'm just trying to cut the problem in half, to try and find where the issue is.

*Edit: Please try this while cabled to your router, with your torrents turned off, with other users unplugged/disconnected - thanks!

Thanks,
Tim

I'm guessing you're talking to Snap/UFB customers but for comparison I can get nearly 1.9MB/s on Telecom ADSL.

Generally, although your results are still interesting. Serves as a useful comparison between a plain HTTP and speedtest.net.

Keep 'em coming.

Hi Tim, came down on my Snap 100/50 connection at about 8.1MB/s

Watching it come in, it looked to me like something was rate limiting the transfer. It did peek at ~4.4M/s as can be seen above.

I'm using TCL Warpspeed - 100/10.

I'm with Snap UFB 30/10.

Downloading around 3.3MB/sec

I don't know that point of national download test, because the issue is with international.

kyhwana2: Also, no IPv6 on fry.snap.net.nz?


Intentionally, the IPv6 routing table is not efficient yet, so let's not muddy the water.

I'll test that later...

Not too surprising considering TCL peering policy.

i think that's his hard-disk being slow, it got all the data, then it had to write it to disk...
