From my vps to access RESTFul service in China is VERY slow
My VPS is located in Chicago, when I access restful service in China, I usually get 1KB/s speed, sometimes only 700B/s. However if I use my home PC (Rogers network in Toronto), I get at least 44KB/s, sometimes >100KB/s.
Opened a ticket to my VPS provider, I was told the following:
"The issue appears to be on the Chinanet network and we don't have the ability to route around Chinanet"
So, I am wondering if I switch to a west coast DC would it help? My current VPS has servers in CA.
Also, anyone knows a good vps with good connection to China?
As I know there is a firewall filter all the traffics from international before entering into China, this is the main reason most of the outsider facing slow connection to/from china. You should look for those providers do have direct link to chinacom or you can look for the hosting provider in HK.
