    chicago speed tests....

    Was wondering if some people could run a download test for me...

    1. http://www.nxpanel.net/test.zip

    2. http://www.fdcservers.net/100MBtest.zip

    If your in Chicago, feel free to post your download files for me to test, please include your download speed compared to your max speed and your location...

    thank you,
    Devon

    I max out on both but my download speed is limited to 3mbit..so hoping to get some opinions from different locations and people with faster connections.

    From our location at 350 East Cermak, FDC was real jumping in speed.

    Clint & ameen, do you have a test file for your networks? I know I've talked with people from ColoQuest and Ubiquity before but I couldn't find test files when I was posting this.

    Also ameen, would you be able to traceroute nxpanel.net ?


    Do you guys think these speeds are good or should be higher?

    thanks again,
    Devon

    Here is a test file, this is just on a normal 100mb cpanel server, not gigabit so dont try and do like 50 simaltaneous downloads.

    It's kind of a rarity that Clint ventures on these forums - so I'll pick this up for him. http://www.ubiquityservers.com/25MB is a test file for Ubiquity.

    To give a canned answer to your question - the speeds are what they are, it's really up to you what's acceptable for your goals. I think the deciding factor in working with a company with a model like FDC is weighing out the importance bandwidth availability vs. cost. Like most providers, their service works far better for some things than others.

    thanks Corey, I've looked into your company before but the thing is, one of my servers is a tower case which FDC supports but with you it'd probably be considered 4U which would cost me $65 just for that space. I do like being in the same building as Equinix but I think that might be a move for me down the road.


    btw feel free to pm me

    Hello I have tried both links. I am in Tokyo / Japan on a 100Mbit/s line.


    1. http://www.nxpanel.net/test.zip
    2. http://www.fdcservers.net/100MBtest.zip

    both do give me roughly 200KB/s. They are both not the fastest and take sometimes long to start the download. I wouldnt choose any of those 2.

    But again for the price range that you have in mind these might be your best option.

    As a comparison you can try these servers (keep in mind where they are based).

    www.oscn-hosting.us (New York)
    www.oscn-hosting.com (Las Vegas)
    www.oscn-hosting.hk (Hong Kong)
    www.oscn-hosting.jp (Tokyo)

    Best regards

    I agree with Corey, reguardless of who you pick nxpanel or fdc or another you need to decide what is more important. FDC's model is essentially based upon availability, i can guarantee you that at different times of the day different speeds will be more common. While FDC's business model will work for others, some might require a consistent performance and this is done by providing a dedicated and guaranteed bandwidth throughput.

    The guys at ubiquity seem like they are about providing a reliable and consistent service.

    Nxpanel is in indiana but has to go back to chicago so there will be naturely a decrease in throughput, mostly because of the addition of nodes required to connect to there location. In most cases there is 3fold the amount of nodes a traceroute will show. So if a traceroute shows 9 hops, it in reality might be nineteen... This is the TRANSPORT equipment which does not show up in IP based protocol traceroutes. (Distance between nodes has a large effect on latency and latency is directly related to throughput).

    FDC provides a good service but its for a niche market. If you do not need some sort of Quality of Service then they may fit you. There is a whole slew of providers in chicago some expensive some cheap, you need to find a balance.

    Most providers ask for a contract but if you negotiate you can most likely get them to allow you a 1-3 month trial. If the price does not match performance pull out and go on to the next. Or another alternative maybe to inquire if they have dedicated servers for you to lease for a month and test the network.

    jpeacock, would you be able to test both of them to compare?
