    Are these regular speeds for a shared GBIT Port?

    I have a windows server on a shared gbit port and it seems like the upload rate is pretty slow. Could it be someone else on the same port is raping it?

    SSH into your server and run:
    wget http://94.75.223.121/speedtest/1000mb.bin

    I wouldn't relay on speedtest.net results.

    well it's normal you are getting slow speed, you said yourself that your gbit port it's shared.
    i don't think someone else using the same port or something.

    You can still install wget and perform more reliable tests than speedtest.

    Single thread tests, that is above normal speeds already.

    You should try http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test instead.

    For a server, If you do speedtest.net. Make sure you minimize your browser immediately after you press the start button. The fancy Flash effect which show extremely slowly over RDP actually affect the test significantly.

    Off-topic: I wish speedtest.net make something less fancy because the test is terrible with high latency connection to the server, the counter at the corner of the flash windows pretty much lock up the rdp session if your ping to the server exceed 500ms.

    You should share a file and post the link here, and people from different parts of the world will post the dld speed. I find this as most reliable test.
