I'm located in New Zealand accessing a server in Germany (I think - its a 1and1 server purchased through 1and1 UK).
Now at the moment I'm getting between 5,000 & 10,000 B/s transfer rate. So to put that in context I've transfered 60MB in 2 hour 21 minutes.
Now that seems a bit slow...
I did a speed test between here (New Zealand) and London and got 782kb/s download and 270 kb/s upload.
My processor doesn't seem to be doing very much...
Note: If I download less files they seem to come down quicker? I downloaded 2 large files and got up to 100,000B/s. Does downloading lots of small files add a lot of additional overhead?
Is there anything I can try/check/change?
Any help gratefully received.
