    Speed Test Please

    Hi,

    For those with 100Mbit connections (preferable), you please do a speed test on this file for me please :-)

    http://apollo.glxhost.com/100mb.bin

    Also, if you could state your location and data center (and connectivity if possible)

    Thanks!
    Andrew Thomas

    Thanks a lot for all that data.
    This leaves me with more issues :-) It seems to be slow from some places and not others. Whilst this is to be expected slightly, the range is 100Kb-1Mbit+, which does seem excessive.
    Theres nothing obvious from your traceroutes to suggest why either, and theres no "real" issues, since 100Kb+ isn't really enough to call it a problem. Its just slightly bugging me that on a 100Mbit connection, and i've checked the companies external network connection graphs and there is no overcrowding there. Maybe the bottleneck is at one of the other peers, but theres two sepearate providers (GosComb and Netrino) all linking into what i percieve as high quality transit.

    Any ideas?

    It started at 250kb/s and went down to about 100kb/s and stayed there.

    Since European speeds are perfectly fast enough, it seems its just down to slow connectivity across the atlantic, which there isn't really anything I or anyone can really do about.

    I'd like to point out I was really having "issues", and I have no problems with the SynergyWorks network. I've been there for about 4 months now, and its perfect. Support is instant and goes beyond what i've ever experienced with other companies.
