    Hi all,

    Just finalizing servers I have found a decent server in Perth or Sydney and would value some time from you who can download this 100MB file and let me know download times

    http://118.127.40.11/~speedtfi/100mb.test

    Cheers
    Dan

    Can't get it on Safari with 4G - probably too big, will test at home

    cheers. yeah don't do 4g its 100MB file just do it at home, latency should be very low for you guys, not so great for us expats but not terrible either. Took me 5 minutes.

    wow that is terrible. Australian peer networking is just atrocious. They could really do with untangling the entire thing

    looks like we are going with a server in LA. Ironic that a server in America has a faster route to Australia that a Sydney or Perth server. That is how tangled the system is there. My guess is that the one out of Perth is linked to the other side of Australia via Singapore

    Thanks you for your concern :sleepy:

    'Telstra CRM' is actually an oxymoron :mad:


    Why are we testing 100mb - is it for all my emoticons:s
    I wouldn't have thought that we would be grabbing 100 mbytes per thread :huh:

    because a 10mb file only gives a very limited picture of latency. 100Mb is a significantly large enough file that I can tell what the overall latency will be.

    If we use a 10mb file it may stall for the first few Mb whilst it gathers its connection.

    Kind of like testing a car, if you start the engine and turn it off straight away you don't get a good picture of the motors warm running

    OK - but if you named your file some saucy name, I'm sure that you would get more testers :idea:

    ha its not my file, its one released by the companies for testing latency.

    I was about to pull the trigger on Sydney hosting last night because I though there is no way it will be slower than the LA one, but that is amazing

    We are so pathetic for bandwidth in Oz, that I notice after 3pm, when the kids in the neighbourhood come home, the speed noticeably slows :s

    Its 8pm when I did the test, so again its a serious deterioration of throughput.

    The other tests were done 5am - 7am, so they would have given you false hope :)

    Tests run around 11pm 20/05/14, on ADSL 8192/384 kbps home service:

    ---

    100mb.test:

    Dload #1: 2:00
    Dload #2: 2:15

    In both cases the throughput strangely paused for a few seconds around 1/3 of the way through, and markedly dropped in speed briefly about 4/5 of the way through.

    ---

    Ping 118.127.36.5:

    Min = 27ms, Max = 28ms, Ave = 27ms

    Don't know anything about pinging so can't help you there.

    @Dan Optus wiFi 4G - 4:30am Sydney

    Download 56 secs

    Ping min=27ms max=43ms ave=33ms

    Magnitude of ten difference from the test at Peaktime of 8pm last night.

    This aptly demonstrates the bandwidth scam running in Oz for mobile broadband :mad:
