Why Do 2 Droplets In The Same Region Have Significantly Different Network Speeds?
I’m running 2 droplets on the New York 1 server and was wondering what their network speeds were. I ran speedtest-cli on both of them and these were the results:
Download: 764.21 Mbit/s
Upload: 724.23 Mbit/s
Download: 4467.73 Mbit/s
Upload: 4.18 Mbit/s
I don’t understand why the speeds are so different, it’s not affecting my performance, I was just curious. Both of them are running the cheapest ($5/month) plan. They both run with identical settings (private networking and monitoring)
