    This is what you can expect internationally from a SunnyVision device.

    0.3Mbps. A few mails to their support and the only option i'm given is paying substantially exrtra for 'dedicated international bandwidth'. This is a device which cost US$3500 for a forced 2-year contract.

    I think they might be overselling. A bit.

    No, this is typical if you do not get dedicated bandwidth, which you will not get without paying a lot more. Their site says its shared bandwidth.
    $145/month is what you are paying basically, not much where bandwidth costs ~$60/Megabit.

    You are also downloading from Central USA to hong kong, you might have better results downloading from a west coast location.

    I think I disagree. Shared bandwidth is fine, i'm under no illusions that this is anything else. Paying for 0.3Mbps in 2011, shared or otherwise, isn't fine. I'm not expecting to be pushing 100Mbps, or even a fraction of that - just fair value.

    Here's one of our other servers in Hong Kong, different provider (slightly cheaper in fact) still shared bandwidth...

    We've customers in SunnyVision pushing peak at 50Mbps. But I think they are on dedicated bandwidth.

    Why did you test on a US server? Maybe they are best for Asia traffic, because they seem to use Singtel a lot, which is an Asia-based telecom.

    Wow, that is too slow even if you are in hong kong.

    I am in Asia too and I can get better than that even if it is in Dallas or USA.

    Which you'll find a lot of protocols doesn't work or get throttled quite badly on the upload side, like FTP, P2P and VPN, SNMP and random packet loss during peak hours. I figured out FTP get throttled to 0.1% of speed that I get by creating a VPN to the same IP. Too bad the ISPs started closing the "loophole" and VPN get throttled down as well.

    38.5KB/s does seems a bit low though, but is pretty much expected in Hong Kong colo.

    Yes, there is significant packet loss, but with my spam TCP connections hack (https://bitbucket.org/cryptw/ftpsplit), I do manage to push 100 Mbps whenever I need to (with the help of HE.net's local IPv6 router (: ).

    International bandwidth from Hong Kong is around $70/mbit. You're no doubt going through public/peered links which are amazingly over crowded from HK. You're not dealing with "shared bandwidth" issues at the provider, this is a regional issue. No doubt your speeds to HK users are fine...?
