BTW, this is primarily a customer-to-customer forum.
That said, I remember a couple of people from Europe mentioning that download speeds from the Europe were… underwhelming.
I’ve been thinking about this issue for a while. These same folks don’t seem to have a problem with some sites, only DH. I suspect this means that they don’t have problems with certain major portals and web enterprises. These are the same enterprises that have sophisticated edge networks that direct traffic to local servers and push content to servers closer to the end user.
I am also suspicious about traffic shaping over the transatlantic links. That is, that priority is being given to certain traffic over other traffic based either on content or on source. Can you can buy transatlantic backhaul for your traffic to make sure you get priority routing? I dunno.
Anyway, what sort of speeds are you seeing?
