    Need a speed test...

    I'm a sysadmin at a data center and we need some help testing our bandwidth. Specifically testing single-file downloads. If you've got a pipe bigger than 10megabits/second could you try downloading this file? (remove the spaces... and its not a virus, its a bunch of random junk)
    see below....

    And letting me know how fast you got. We've got 2 1000mb/s pipes, and I've tested downloading it over out LAN up to 104mb/s, so it should be fast. One of our new customers can't get more than 3.5mb/s from his server, so we want to test it out.

    Thanks for your help!

    That information doesn't really seem to help unless you can say what providers it's going through (ie traceroutes/route summary).

    Cuz, myself and one other have clearly shown it's not a single homed provider the guy's machine is connected to... and at least two paths are fully capable of 100Mbps.
