OK, that's more like it. It's definitely an overseas hop.

Run the java tweak tool from here:

You are a tool....and are getting *far better* treatment in this forum than your initial post deserved.

Most agreed. Smile

@Matchstick
I already stated what you need to do in my first post anyways - contact your ISP and ask them to fix the route between yourself and DreamHost.

As your initial post here seems to suggest that the logical thing to do is bash your host in order to somehow magically fix the situation (aka. Whining), don't expect anything less than a good bashing from those of us here in the forums who won't stand for it. Go talk to your ISP and stop wasting your time here.

I'm in the UK, downloading a mix starts at 200k burst then levels off at 70k. Still fast enough to be streaming at 320kbps.

Like your very first post, that one says nothing.

Quote:Your witty insights are raising my intelligence level by the second.
It can't get any lower.

Pretending you're not stupid isn't going to convince anyone here that you're not.

Maybe you can point out the exact parts of your first post that would indicate that you're not a moron:

Quote:My experience of Dreamhost was fantastic for the 97day money back period. Then things started to go wrong. I get ridiculously poor download speeds from my site to the point that I am not able to use my hosting package for what I bought it for. The only reason Dreamhost are are doing ok imo is because people are trying to recover some of their losses by using their promotion codes to "Sucker" soemone else in.
Show me exactly where you were kindly asking us for help as you claimed was the intention of your post.

Can't find it? Okay, I'll make it easier. Where in that post is there anything that doesn't make you look like a clueless imbecile?

Again, you came here to be a trolling idiot and you got treated like one.

You're also not in a position to pretend you're smart, since you're the one that came here asking us for help.

I'll also point it out again. I've helped plenty of people here over the years--they just weren't imbeciles like you. You, on the other hand, have never contributed a single thing to this forum, other than whining and stupidity.

Keeping in that mind, do you really think anyone cares what you think about my posts? Go find a forum here where you can actually offer helpful advice to someone, then get back to me.

Go back and read this thread again. I'm far from the only one pointing out what an idiot you are.

Or save $97 with THEFULL97.

This isn't all too difficult to explain - although certainly an unlikely situation, where all of Europe has a bad route either to North America at large, the West Coast of the US, or just the specific IP your server is on. Considering as you've stated you've tested other DreamHost sites and have seen decent/better speeds and including the fact that, after you moved to another server, speeds were "tolerable" for some time, I'd say that either a bad route to just that specific IP or some bandwidth throttling is taking place. Either DreamHost is throttling your bandwidth (which they would have told you in a support ticket) or something/someone else (your ISP?) is throttling the connection to that IP. Again, you'd be better off working with your ISP to resolve this issue as those of us in the US aren't experiencing speed issues with your site and thus eliminating DreamHost itself from being the culprit in this case.

I did actually say that I had been extremely happy with dreamhost in the first few months. I didnt come here to argue with anyone and I havn`t said anyone is wrong and that I am right. I havnt disputed the results obtained by anyone (I seem to recall thanking people for the time they have taken)

The only person I believe I have been rude to is Seiler (oh and possibly Dreamhost)... cos I find the fact he is prepared to spend so much time having a go at me fascinating, I am quite happy to return any rudeness given to me... I just prefer to make my answers short.. cos I have better things to do.
