Topic: Call for Information

We have received reports of slow download speeds from our atlanta location, we are looking to gather data in regards to the issue. We are asking if people can do download tests from residential connections and provide the following information

  - Average speed of download (does it start fast then slow?, does it start slow but speed up?)
  - A traceroute from your location

Links:
  http://node4.smart-serv.net/1000mb

Linux users:
  Please use the following command on Linux wget -O /dev/null -4 http://node4.smart-serv.net/1000mb or fetch -o /dev/null -4 http://node4.smart-serv.net/1000mb for BSD users
  For traceroute use traceroute -4 node4.smart-serv.net

Windows users:
  You can use any browser to perform the download
  For traceroute open command line, tracert node4.smart-serv.net

We will request more tests in time to compare against other locations

Re: Call for Information

Two locations, one USA, one Netherlands.

Download speed mostly stayed in the 3.0mb/s range throughout.

Unstable speed, ranging from 0.3 to 1.2 MB per second
I'd say the average speed was 600 KB per second

    as well as the file never actually downloading. Using Chrome, the file popped up on the download bar and was stuck "Starting..."
