    Leaseweb Volume Netowrk or someone else (Only for Europe)

    I have recently ordered a 100mbps unmetered from Leaseweb but I realized their Volume Netowrk is not the best when it comes to copy large amount of data from a US server.



    For example,

    I'm trying to rsync my data (150GB) from Softlayer and it is not able to push more then 5Mb/sec.

    Is that normal? I opened a ticket with them about 7 hours ago but there is no response so far.


    Anyways all that aside. I am going to use this server only for visitors that come from Europe only. Should I be looking for someone else who is better or is LeaseWeb the best option for me?

    My server specs are
    QC X3440
    8GB RAM
    2 X 500GB HDD
    100mbps (Leaseweb Volume Network)



    Again my US Visitors gets served from Softlayer and I was thinking about having Leaseweb to be used for Europe traffic.

    I have been able to max out 100 Mbps to LeaseWeb when getting stuff from US servers several times. I tried the SoftLayer test files just now and got between 8 to 11 MB/s.

    But if you have visitors in the US and your service is bandwidth sensitive (like uploading is), it makes sense to have one server in Europe and one in the US.

    Is it 5MB/sec or 5Mb (mbit)/sec? 5MB/sec would be OK for transatlantic, 5mbit not so much.

    Oh man I just tested this as it turned out only one server was pushing at 5Mb/sec and now the other server is going at 50Mb/sec

    ~50mbps is pretty good speed on 100mbps line if your traffic goes over Atlant. Do not to be expected more

    So all is faster now? 5 Mbit was indeed pretty slow if you ask me even from US.

    Consider the following:

    TCP-Window-Size-in-bits / Latency-in-seconds = Bits-per-second-throughput

    Given that you cannot easily reduce the latency, you should be able to increase the throughput over long distances by increasing the TCP window size.
