    Acceptable shared hosting speed ?

    For those of you under shared hosting, whats the minimum download/upload speed you'd want to your website?

    I'm currently hitting 400-600kbytes/s from my two hosts, but I'm curious to know what sort of speeds to expect from "regular" shared hosting. Should I be contented or get more/less speeds ? Lets find out

    Let me start off,

    My location = UK
    Host location = US west, US East
    Speed = 400kbytes/s , 600kbytes/s

    What kind of connection are you on? Other than that, the bottleneck is somewhat going to be to distance as well. Keeping all of that in mind, I would say that those are good speeds.

    Those are from my 10mbit home connection, which consistently get 1.2mbytes/s to European servers. I'm pretty happy with the sort of speed I'm getting to my hosts, but I'm a curious cat as to what others are getting

    Those would be considered decent speeds for shared hosting. If you're able to achieve those speeds constantly then you should be in good hands.

    Yeah I agree, that's a good speed for a shared account

    I guess from the UK you can get more than 2MBPS if your connection supports it.
