good idea Max, i wonder how much bandwidth that will use :)

quite a bit if everyone tested the 100mg like me :poke:

i got 60k p/s which is about my ISP limit, so apart from paying for me to upgrade my internet, thats perfect for me :P

with the 10MB file, rates dropped to about 420KB/s before it ended (started out higher), with the 50 & 100MB  they dropped and levelled off around 365KB/s...  (I didn't bother finishing the 100 though because it stayed constant long enough I felt comfortable with it...)

It usually always levels out after a moment. Thats why I put up the larger files, so you guys and gals can really test :)
Title: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: JimBrown on January 15, 2005, 08:15:00 AM
Not too shabby. The 50mb file averaged almost 560kps. I have cable internet access through Videotron.ca.

Incidently, when uploading large files to my site (average size 20mb) my upload speed averages 75-80kps.

I do like my cable provider.  :D

Post by: RickJ on February 02, 2005, 03:33:48 AM
I'm on a cable connection (roadrunner)
I did the 5MB and 10MB files...both hovered at 170-175 after they leveled off.
Is this good for a cable connection?
Title: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: Jay on February 02, 2005, 04:33:28 AM
pretty decent.

average depending on a few things..

1. location of yourself in relation to the server.
2. location of yourself to nearest ISP hub
3. # of other customers on that hub on at the same time.
4. # of hops between yourself and the server.
5. processor, and Harddrive speeds (minor in most cases, however there very noticeable differences can occur between a Pentium II 350MHz/256 SDRAM and a Pentium 4 2.8GHz/1Gb DDR in relation to download speeds obtained)
6. processes running on the system at the same time.

There are other factors as well, however, question is what is your Cable connection speed set to at Maximum by the provider?

Mine is now a 5Mbps down, but I used to be on 384 Kbps cable.

Post by: Jay on February 02, 2005, 04:46:39 AM
jackso7,
not a problem :)

Just for information's sake.
On the old 384 Kbps connection.
I used to average 120 - 180 k/s down most times with my PII.
Then upgraded to the new P4 and things improved to averaging anywhere from 140 - 340 k/s down.

with the same P4 and my new 5Mbps connection, I'm getting anywhere from 380 - 700k/s down.

A lovely change :)

For these specific ones, I'll have to check and let ya know.

I only get 164 kByte/sec here for the 100 Mb file on my 8 Mbps down / 1 Mbps up cable internet EURO-DOCSIS connection, at other sites (also US ones, I am in the Netherlands by the way) I easily get download rates over 800 kByte/sec with 1.000 kByte.sec at some sites.

When I use Download Accelerator Plus using the 100 Mb file I got an average transfer rate of 935.2 kByte/sec, so the connection as such is more than OK.

What can cause this huge difference?

How does this relate to the download speeds one might achieve on your particular shared server, though? I imagine that in most cases, download bandwidth is less of a factor than the processing load on the server...

I get around 120K/sec on a 4MB download link, so there's room for improvment

for what it's worth, I tried this at work the other night... well, about 2:30AM, so probably very few people on the network at the time...

the 100MB file levelled off at a xfer rate around 1192k/s (yes, 1192, not a typo)... now, if only I could figure out how to get that sort of xfer rate at home without going broke...

Wow..
that's sweet..
my download of the 10MB file was not cool this morning, it hovered at 230kb/s max, the dwindled off to 130kb/s

I think I may be calling my ISP tonight.. my uploads are great and well within the norm for what I am supposed to have at 800kbps (roughly 95-100kb/s)

but with a 5mbps connection I should be able to snag these files at 600+Kb/s consistently.

I was able to get speeds of about 3200kb/sec (3.2 MB /sec) to the T3 at the company I work for.
1500kb/sec to my Shell that my ISP provides,

just nearly under 5000kb/sec on a shell in Texas. 

Pretty fast. :)

100MB test not done yet but, looks like it is going to come in at around 120 KB/sec.  Not my set up but, will be using it for a while -- South Central Bell DSL.

Off anyone's cuff -- Should I spend time researching / tweaking?  I remember far better performance with cable.  What little time I have "owned" DSL in the past, I can not remember  being satisfied -- much less, impressed.

Post by: Rick_E on December 30, 2005, 01:01:31 PM
Just to note that download speeds are often given in KiloBytes per second, while ISP speeds are usually given in kilobits per second.

To get the approximate kbps you need to multiply KB/second by nine. For example 75 KB/sec download speed  x 9 = 675 kbits per second.

Using another example, a 1.5 mbps DSL service would deliver about a 167 KB/second download speed.
Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: Nibbler on December 30, 2005, 01:07:56 PM
There are 8 bits in a byte though (4 in a nibble :)).
Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: Rick_E on December 30, 2005, 03:26:28 PM
Yes I believe it's 8 bits in a byte but also 1 extra parity bit to ensure accuracy during transmission, but I may be mistaken.
Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: JimBrown on December 31, 2005, 07:14:58 AM
If I recall correctly, broadband protocols, such as Ethernet, do not use parity bits. Those are used by telephone modems.

However, in the TCP/IP protocol there is other overhead, such as the packet headers. For TCP it is usually 20 bytes per packet. Add to that the IP header which is also usually 20 bytes.

Then there is the transmission protocol, such as Ethernet, which also adds its own headers (12 at the front, 4 at the end.) The 4 at the end is a CRC value, which is where the error checking takes place.

The usual broadband maximum transmission unit (MTU) for TCP/IP is 1500 bytes, which consists of the TCP header, 20 bytes, the IP header, 20 bytes and the payload, 1460 bytes. Ethernet adds 16 bytes for a total of 1516 bytes travelling the wire.

That means, under ideal conditions, the maximum speed that data that can be transferred is 96.3 percent of the bandwidth.

Using base 2 for the math, a 1mbps connection (1048576 bits per second) can (again, under ideal conditions) transfer a maximum of 123.26 KB/s.

1048576 / 8 * .963 / 1024

A 5mbps connection would have a maximum transfer rate of 616.32 KB/s.

Of course, there are other factors that will slow down the transfer, such as latency, resending bad packets, etc.

Just got a new cable modem installed... now getting in the 950-975 KB/s range for downloads from LP...

and I think this is going to fix the problems with dropped connections I was having with RR as well (the first two modems weren't any good I think)... but only time will tell on that... giving it a couple of days to see if it's really cleared up...

anyway, newer modem, and everything does seem to be going faster for me now...

There are a lot of things that can effect download speeds between the server and the end user... beyond the speed of the server and it's connection to the net. At each hop along the way there is a potential for data to be slowed down, so things could be fast one day and really slow the next. At LP though, my experience is that it's almost always been fast...

Post by: hgctiscali on March 07, 2006, 09:15:48 AM
Hello. I suppose that Lunarpages' servers has enabled the HTTP Compression (standard HTTP GZip compression). That means that all the content downloaded by HTTP is compressed by the server and uncompressed by the client. That seriously increases the HTTP performance for text/html files, and you may get unreal download rates...  :o

Maybe that's the reason you used ZIP files for this test. A ZIP file cannot be compressed very much because it is already compressed, so it doesn't make the difference for the test. But when I downloaded the files and tried to open them I got an error message: they aren't real ZIP files! They are DOC files, text files! You have changed the DOC extension to ZIP, but you haven't compressed them at all!  :-?

As text files they are, they are being significatively compressed by standard HTTP GZip. So the results of your test are unreal, right?  :?

Apart from that, I was connected with a 4 MB/s ADSL but I got rates between 15 KB/s and 20 KB/s for all files of your test. But I downloaded (before and after your test) files from other server at 90 KB/s, is not a problem of my ISP.  I got very surprissed with these results...  I'm in Spain (Europe), maybe the high-speed of Lunarpages is only inside USA?  :(
Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: Jay on March 07, 2006, 10:41:06 AM
hello,

it's nothing to do with the actual zip file or doc file.
It's a matter of downloading the file itself.

We could have placed a 100MB .pdf or .psd or left off the file extension all together.

Essentially the files are there as a demonstration of the Transfer rates.

For me, on 5Mbit/s cable I get the 100MB file at a rate of roughly ~600kb/s on average.

I'm located in Ontario, Canada.
I've known others in Europe to get around 90 - 300kb/s for the same files.

As GMTurner indicated there are a number of things that can affect the download rates.
routing and distance between the host and yourself as well being the biggest factors.

it's between 75 KB/s and 80 KB/s for me. I do have a 5mbit line actually, but since i'm located in Europe (the Netherlands) it might a bit slower than the impressive 300+ you all are getting.
I'm considering moving hosts, since i'm pretty fed up with hosting company over here, but most importantly is that i get stable and good connection here in Europe and in China...
I've experienced to connection for here... which is pretty decent.. but what about China guys?
Maybe I should ask someone in china to try download the file to check check ^_^.

Similar speed for a file on one of my site hosted in US.

Eh, lots of things make a difference.

Im pulling on average for the for the 100MB file around 1.05MB/sec.

Of course I am in nevada, and dont think im to far from either datacenter.

Connection is a 10 Mbps down and 1 Mbps up.

This is on a AMD Athlon 64 3000+

Dont ask about my cable bill lmao

Hi!
I get max DL rate of 130kb/s with dropdowns at minimum of 70kb/s

My space is on server called SURT and I tested it on there too and received the same result.
FTP upload of the same file was at the rate of ~40kb/s

I dont know how you can get such a good speeds. I have a great internet connection at my faculty here in Serbia and I can go up to 3MB/s for DL.

Well the speed is not so important as the server stability is for me... If the speed is average, and the server is stable and I dont have problems I'm happy. I dont want speedy server that doesnt work well when its most needed.

Post by: erik__ on March 31, 2007, 07:44:10 AM
That is unbelievably slow.. I get like 50k/sec.. I can send with my adsl modem with 5x that speed. I was just about to sign up with your site but.. wow thats slow.. I didn't even know you could get that slow speeds from any server in the western world anymore.
Is this really the speed I would get from my site if I buy your hosting, or is this just for the particular user hosting that speed test?
Don't mean to be overly rude, but even if I had so many users that there were like 10 simultaneous downloads constantly 24/7 the monthtly advertised bandwidth wouldn't be reached for 2 months..
I live in Sweden, and I have three downloads going right now, from microsoft.com and apple.com at 400k each, and your speed test at 50k, the same if I cancel the others and only run yours.. I've tracerouted them and your site actually have the least hops.. the hops are the same in Europe and only changes when they get to the USA where you have 3 hops to your site and the others have like 5 or 6.
It's obviously your server too that doesn't give each connection enough bandwidth since a download manager with 10 connections gives me 400k/sec.
Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: AlexGator on March 31, 2007, 08:41:55 AM
I manage two dedicated servers in two different locations with different ISPs and one thing when testing download speed.

If I start on one of them it goes up to 500K/s but than I start downloading on the second server and the download speed drops on the first.

So, my point is that some people might of gotten slow speed because someone might have been downloading already and the channel was busy. But this is just my theory.

Just tested this and was getting anywhere from 690KB/s up to 840KB/s but it averaged around 770KB/s so I'd have to say that the download speeds are pretty darn good.

Like Nguoikhonglo in Vietnam, I'm getting around 15kB/s from South Africa. LunarPages' hosting is the best offer I can find anywhere but, at those speeds, I won't be able to host anything for local visitors. In fact, some of the icons for this page haven't even finished loading yet! I'm on a 4Mbps DSL connection here. I really wish I could find a way around this problem, 'cause the hosting packages are very attractive, especially compared to our local ripoff artists.

It seems to me that when doing this test that you would be testing the download speed of the slowest server / router on the connection (Prob your ISP).

Hi Betaruce, their isn't an actual way to test the upload speed without having an account, however if you were to sign up and were unhappy with the upload speed, you have 30 days to get a full moneyback guarantee.

This is very sad.  I'd really like to move from "Brand X" webhosting, but I noticed that the lunarpages.com homepage takes as much as 7 minutes to load.

So I did this download speed test.  My results:  135kps for both the 1mb and the 10mb files.  That's both with and without NAV turned off.

Now here's the kicker:  my broadband download speed just tested at 17,700 kps (speedtest.net).  The rest of my www goes flashing by.  This is the only site I've been to in years that's this slow.

I can ping lunarpages.com at <45ms.  But loading any pages from this domain is like being back in the old 1200 baud days.

Anybody have any ideas what might be going on here?

Post by: cwrig on November 05, 2007, 12:56:15 PM
I was considering switching another of my websites to Lunarpages.   I have one very small site with Lunar now and it works fine.   But I have a more important site on another host that I was considering moving to lunarpages.

So, I downloaded this test file.  It never got more than 50Kb/sec.   So, I uploaded the same file to my other host and to my own lunarpages account's server.   My lunarpages server account did the same speed; around 50Kb/sec.   However, the download speed on my other host was 300Kb/sec.   I conducted the test several times on each host; each with the same results.

Lunarpages is Slow.  4 times slower!   I think Ill leave my other account where it is.

Very weird cwrig, you might give it a few days and then try again.  You might have some ISP connection issues slowing things down for you in the middle.  Test file is coming in really quick here - all the way from lunar-central to Texas.  :thumb:

* Update - with the 100MB file I am getting right now around 150 - 175 KB/sec

How could it possibly be my ISP when I am testing the same file to from different hosts FROM the same ISP?

Ive tried it several times today, as I mentioned with the same results (within a few K of each other).  Ill try again tomorrow to see if lunarpages imporves any.

Where is your datacenter located?  Im am testing from East Coast of USA.

As noted earlier, right now with the 100MB file I am getting right now around 150 - 175 KB/sec (with my quick Firefox test)  I believe that server the download is being served from is in one of our California data centers.  We have servers in both California and Nevada.

Hi all, I'm new here and I'm thinking of purchasing a hosting package but I would like to have something cleared up before I do.
I'm in the UK (Please don't hold that against me  ;D ) I have a 16mb copper connection but in fairness, I live a distance away from my exchange so the best I get is 5.5mb. I can d/l from other sites like apple (I use a mac) at this speed (5.5mb) all day long if need be, but when I use your 100MB test file, the best I can get is 320kb and when I use the 2 different 10MB files in the post, they both d/l at 295kb. Also, when I click on a link to any of Lunar's pages, I get a lag of about 5 seconds before the page starts to load. I know all sorts of things can contribute to this but I've a fairly good system (Quad G5 2.5ghz 4Gig of Ram top end grfx card) so its not down to my system and tests using other sites in USA both before and after show that I get my full speed with them.
I have done a trace route and ping to both LP.co.uk LP.com and the results are below, you tech's will be able to see if they're good or bad better than I.

I stopped it again at 16 as I assumed it was going nowhere or somewhere it shouldn't be.
So are these any good? Why are your pages slow to start when I click on them?
Also, I would like to know, if lets say, I had an account, and ten or twenty peeps were to d/l the same file off my site at the same time, is the bandwidth speed going to be shared between them all slowing the d/l down to a trickle or will they all get the full bandwidth?
My last point, (honest) what are the upload speeds as I need my customers to be able to upload files to me up to 300MB I would imagine and I will need to upload files sometimes above 1GB at a time. Not for storing, for them to d/l their DVD that I will have made them from their uploaded files.
My own upload speed is 768 and I do reach those speeds but I may be changing to an ISP that offers 3mb upload with 24mb d/l soon so can your sites handle that?
Hope you can answer me these questions?
Thanks very much in advance, hope to be a customer soon as my host at the moment is USELESS! (Siteground.com) you can read my review here

If possible,  I would test things out a few more times. A lot of the measurement of how quickly you can download and access the servers would have to do with the ISP connection as well as the server - so that is something that can also not be ruled out as a problem.

Been searching the last couple days for a new hosting outfit.  Saw your download speed thing while I was checking out various companies.  Don't know why I signed up for the forum just to make this post but I have to say I am very impressed.  My current web host-- WebHost4Life-- and I have been going round and round for days on ftp download speed.  I am getting dial-up, yes, 57 KB/s and they had the nerve to insist that was normal download speed on a shared server.  I tested the 100 MB file here.  It took about 2 minutes with an average transfer rate of exactly 1 MB/s and a peak speed of 1.3 MB/s.

This only leaves me with one question.  Are we downloading from a shared or dedicated server?  Either way it's some darn nice download speed!   :clap:

Hi guys,

Could you do a test for me please as well.

I have uploaded a file into one of LP servers
1. http://www.lunarpages.com/speedtest/data10MB.zip - this is the original link posted here on the first page.
2. http://fetu.lunarmania.com/~chern6/speedtest/data10MB.zip - this is the file I uploaded into my LP account.

I am from Australia. I have ADSL2+ at about 10 Mbit/s. So the fastest I can go (from microsoft.com, for example) is about 1000 Kb/s.
I am getting the first file at about 300 Kb/s.
But only about 20 Kb/s for the second one. :(

It's obviously they are located at different places. And for some reason one place is much slower then the other for me.

I can provide traceroutes if it helps.

The first one (the quick one):

Title: Re: Testing Lunarpages download speed.
Post by: RabbitRun on March 28, 2008, 02:57:55 AM
It seems to be capped at around 400 Kb/sec. And it's a cap per download thread, since I can get close to full speed (~1800 Kb/sec) when using a download manager with several segments. (And, yes, I can get full speed with a single download thread on other servers, so it has nothing to do with my settings.) The same goes for my website/ftp.

This is very disappointing,
why is lunarpages capping?

Cheers,
RR

I've been getting complaints from customers these last few weeks about the downloadspeeds.
I used to get 75 to 100kbps here in Belgium, which isn't fast, but ok for most (simple) sites.
But now...
(http://img245.imageshack.us/img245/6202/downloadspeedwm8.png)

It has nothing to do with my ISP (350kbps, some customers 1200kbps)
I'm thinking about starting a video podcast, but with this speed I guess I'll have to change host  :cry:

You might start with the Basic hosting plan, and then if for any reason you need to upgrade - you can do so at any time.  I hope that helps and if there is anything else we can do for you please feel free to let us know.  We are here to help with anything else you might need.  Thank you for your time.

Great service, out of all my hosting plans, I get the best service, almost never any downtime.

Hmm - have been testing a little tonight. The speed downloading these files alle end up around 200KB/sec. I've also tested with FTP to my shared hosting on LP, also ends up with around 200KB/sec. I compared to another of my hosts located in Oslo - measures 1200KB/sec - proves that my ISP should be fine :)
As I'm located in Norway - could that be the problem for the low downloadspeed from LP?

Thanks

Easily. Given the sheer number of hops you'd have to travel through, the overall speed would decrease. This is why large download sites have mirrors for multiple locations so you can get the fastest speed by going to a server nearest you.

The 10MB file averaged about 320k/sec to Sydney Australia, via Optus Cable

Agreed! This would be great to be able to test my connection speed to Lunarpages. I can test my connection speed to other servers out there, but not directly to you guys!

Can we get this tool back?

Accessing speed is always one of the concerns in picking web hosting. This is because the faster the speed the faster your website loads thus providing a better experience to your visitors. The accessing speed also does somehow reflect the quality of technology being used in the server. This is because a more accurate data transfer will result in lesser re-transfer and thus quicker speed.
