I tried the URLs and they are working, what issue are you having with it?

Thanks
http://speedtest-ny1.digitalocean.com/ and http://speedtest-ams1.digitalocean.com/test.zip gives an error message saying that the test has expired.
Ahh, thanks, looks like we need to get the new version installed =]
New Speed tests here:

Hi,

The results i get when i test with:
http://speedtest-ny1.digitalocean.com/test.zip - Maxes my connection at 13Mbps
&
http://speedtest.nyc.digitalocean.com/100MB - I only get 2Mbps

Why the difference?
I've just tested both links and was downloading at the same speed, give it a shot at a different time and see if you are seeing the same download speed.
We have new speed test files up:

NEW YORK: http://198.211.116.146/
AMSTERDAM: http://198.211.119.108/
I am transferring my site from 1and1 philadelphia server to digital ocean amsterdam server. The files on the old server is zipped and being 'wget'ted to amsterdam server. I am getting speeds like 70 - 100 K / s. Isn't this too slow. I think it should be atleast few M / s, am I right?
@anil_mndl: It depends on your old server's connection. Do you have VirtIO enabled on your droplet?
thanks for the reply Kamal. I just did a transfer from my 1and1 to godaddy and I received 11 MBPS. That tells me the old server connection is fine.

I did enable VirtIO. Isn't that something you choose to enable when creating the droplet. How do I check if its actually enabled?

Thanks
