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...

This on a 5Mb Road Runner connection (soon to be upped to 7Mb- no extra charge Wink)

Looks good- I'm not sure if there is a download difference between a zip file and a pdf, but I tried my current host with one of my files and got:
Code:

with the connection varying wildly between fast and slow Sad (at more $$ than LP).

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...

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...  Surprised

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!  Confused

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

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?  Sad

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.

The last test I did at Job was about 15 KB/s  Confused. Now, at home, I have reached the maximun of my conection: 104 KB/s  Thumbs Up!! (I have a 1 Mbit/s ADSL). Maybe it depends a lot on the ISP, the time,...
Thanks for your help.

What in the "whoopy cushion sound" happened to Max anyway.  Haven't seen him around in a long time.  I think I read in his last post that he had a baby?

What's the scoop.

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 ^_^.

I have a 20mb Optimum Online cable connection from NY and can only get max 70kb out of any of the downloads. I was seriously considering switching to Lunarpages for hosting but if this is all my users can expect then I am afraid it simply will not do.

Disappointed.
