Why is the download speed on my server slower than my home broadband connection ?
I tired to use wget on Ubuntu 16.04 from the shell to download a 200 MB file that I need for configuring some programs. But then I noticed that the download speed was incredibly slow. The speed never exceeded 150 KB/S. Is this because I chose the server location as Bangalore ? I was promised a Gigabit connection.
