    Speed Test

    I'm currently in the midst of deciding a dedicated server package from one of the good ones that I have read online. Just to check,

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 3882 kbps (485.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 1911 kbps (238.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

    Is this a good speed? Anyone care to comment?

    What is your location and where are you downloading from?
    Interesting to know

    Also, what kind of upload / download speed you get from your ISP? - Online in no time

    I think that you need to compare that with other speed you have from other sites and you believe that is fast.
    That was really correctly said in here and most of the things depends on your local ISP.

    So there's no way to compare link speed in this case if its just dependent on my ISP?

    Sorry for being such a noob

    It is possible to compare the server if you have the resources to test from multiple locations around the world but honestly, I'd just get a server as close as possible to your target visitors.

    Basically if you're going to be hosting a site for people in Singapore, you should try to find hosting in or around Singapore where as if your target audience is The United States, then a host in Singapore wouldn't be ideal (it would be fast for you, but slow for the majority of your visitors).

    If you're truly international, you could do something like a CDN for some of your heavier content such as images which would help load-speeds internationally by quite a bit.
