    * Why is GoDaddy website hosting so slow 50KB/sec to 90KB/sec?

    My home internet connection is 90MB/sec download and 10MB/sec upload. I have a website hosted with Godaddy.com and whenever I upload a file to later download it, I get 50KB/sec to 90KB/sec download speed and my upload speed to that website is 1MB/sec. Is this industry standard? If not, what other hosting providers are out there that provide faster download and upload speeds for website hosting needs like mine? Thanks!

    The fact you are connected to a 90 MB/s internet as you said (This is almost 1 Gbps).

    Doesn't mean, you will be served with this speed.

    There are many factors, such as route congestion, remote user peak, carriers limiting (per session) and so on.

    In fact, a faster connection doesn't means it will necessarily be faster always.

    It's not an industry standard and check the offer section for providers.

    There can be many factors. Tracert your website from your computer.

    run
    tracert www.website.com
    from cmd and send results to host they'll help you to figure out the issue.
    Looking around for some time

    Feel happy at least you get 90MB/s in Australia fastest I can get is 20MB/s download and 1MB/s upload (if that, we are so left behind when the internet comes around)

    Don't relate the speed of your internet to a webserver as they can be totally different in terms of performance & speed.

    GoDaddy, though, really? If you are expecting fast speeds on an unlimited service you may want to consider moving.

    This is correct.

    There can be many reasons why the speed is different. Here are a few:

    - Distance. If you are in Europe and the server is in USA you can't expect to push to the limit of your broadband plan.
    - Don't buy what your broadband provider says. They can advertise 1Gbps for $10/mth just for the sake of marketing but they will definitely limit your usage in some ways. Home broadband is cheap for a reason.
    - GoDaddy capped the bandwidth.

    Maybe you would like to provide an URL of a big enough file on you site for speed testing for anyone who want to try.

    Why don't you try going to www.speedtest.net and doing speed tests from cities around the host so you can see if the speed issue if your broadband/international connectivity.
