    Making faster downloads

    Hello,

    I've ordered 1gbit/s port with one my dedicated servers. But I am still unhappy with the speed of download.

    I have 2 mbit DSL connection at home and I can download files with 90 kb/s from the server. I also see the same speed on a 100mbit port server. But I can download files from RapidShare with 210 kb/s..

    What do you recommend me to do make faster downloads from server-side?


    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    I get 78 ms from my all 100mbit and 1000mbit port servers.


    Do you ask this or something else?

    Thank you

    Yes i meant the same . You seem to have good ping results.

    I believe you must fire in a mail to the NOC techs and ask them to confirm the download/upload speeds

    Can you show the thread a traceroute showing the route between your computer and your server?

    Thanks in advance.
    Where are you and where is your server? It will make a BIG difference. As an example a US to UK file will download at around 100kbs on our 8mb connection however a uk to uk file will download at 700kbps.

    If you server is close you should get ping times around 30 to 40ms. 78ms is verging on slow.

    That is easy to explain, the bottleneck isnt with your server it is elsewhere. My best guess is that it is an issue with your isp/country routing. Do you have a file i could test download for you from the uk?

    Okay guys thanks for your efforts. I've tried something and saw that problem is with my ISP.
