    * leave your server address, dedicated server speed test

    I want to buy a dedicated server in US, but my market is in Australia. So it is required that the server speed is fast in Australia(Sydney)

    I have a link, that can test the server speed in global scope http://www.freespeedtest.com/

    guys,

    Please leave the server address and host company name, so I can make an estimation before purchase.

    I will post all the test results, so other guys aslo can have a reference before purchase.

    Thanks All

    That link isn't global for me... only 3Mbps while I get 20-22Mbps at others .

    Hi, I would recommend you go for the west coast providers only, and to be sincere, I doubt the people will post here and in public the address of their servers, specially with file tests that can eat all their bw. You may want to try the available speed tests the companies publish: webnx, fdcservers, softlayer, dedicatednow... to name a few. Just do some research in the offers section, they always put some speed tests with their offers.

    Good luck.

    Can you not get a server closer to home? It would be better for your users.

    PacificRack has a pretty impressive list of network providers. They are located in California, US. Here's a 10MB speedtest from them:

    I would second Pacific Rack. Their speeds to Australia are great (from my experiences).

    What are you going to be doing? Web hosting or game servers?
    If mainly web hosting users are not going to see a noticeable difference in speed of web pages loading from just about anywhere in the US as long as the data center has a decent connection to pacific area.

    Now if you are talking game servers the ping times to anywhere in the US are too great.

    Thanks all for advice,

    The dedicated server in AU is too expensive.
    I just provide web service.
    I will try Pacific Rack first, thanks again
