Ive got two sets of bandwidth, one by cogent[okay expect crapness] and another set thats done through internap [supreme bandiwdth?]
YEt the speeds from the UK are unbearably slow, packet loss and everything.
Though if I do a test to the internap from another US server, the internap is as fast as the remote peer.
the access times from the UK never go faster than say 160ms, yet in the US, I can easily pull less than 20ms.
The transfer rate, per connection(if I start multiple transfers I get higher speeds) are like as bad as 30KB/sec, yet ive been able to transfer at 18MB/sec at some quiet periods when doing an intersite transfer in the US->US.
Its causing me endless grief with doing radio streams that drop like I dont know what!
