When I set up a VPS and Apache on there and I wget a file, or download a file from a web browser, I get a speed of about 1MB/s
Whereas an internet speed test on my computer at home, shows i’m able to download at 12MB/s
Also if I try a speed test from the digitalocean server,
so, ookla commandline speed test
Retrieving speedtest.net configuration… Testing from Digital Ocean (…)… Retrieving speedtest.net server list… Selecting best server based on ping… Hosted by EGI Hosting (Santa Clara, CA) [4.38 km]: 2.584 ms Testing download speed… Download: 5274.92 Mbit/s Testing upload speed… Upload: 1931.09 Mbit/s
That’s slow, less than 1MB/s download and 0.2MB/s upload
So when i’m Downloading from the VPS it’s surprising I even manage to get 1MB/s 'cos i’d be limited by the VPS only being able to upload 0.2MB/s
My computer at home though is capable of 12MB/s
Are there digitalocean servers that would get better results from an internet speed test?
