That problem was caused by a problem in the inhouse cabling of Easynet to one of our uplink providers and has been resolved after you reported the problem. We thank you very much for the provided data, since that helped us a lot in pinpointing the issue back then. I am very suprised to hear that our support department did not get back in touch with you however. They should have kept you up to date regarding this issue.
Unfortunately, over long distances single threaded TCP connections will see a troughput decrease. It is well known that TCP does not fully utilize the available bandwidth in fast long-distance networks. Specially over distances like from the Netherlands to Japan. But the speeds are in KiloByte/s and 1.2 megabit/s sustained per stream should be sufficient for most streaming media needs.
We have many clients in the USA, Turkey, Ukraine, Russia, Germany and Spain that totally max out their dedicated unmetered connection providing streaming media services to their customers with the server provided. Our offer is 100% dedicated unmetered, not shared in any way.
