The FTP speed is only 1.20Mbps, which means a three hour long show (414Mb) takes an hour. If I send the same file to my own webspace in Telehouse it's going at 3.40Mbps and takes about 18 minutes. Heck of a difference.
I'm on VM's 50/3 broadband. My guess is that even if I upgraded to 100/5 or whatever it is, I wouldn't get any faster FTP speed to that server, it's maxed out at 1.20Mbps ? However, my own webspace may be able to accept a higher speed as 3.40Mbps is probably as fast as it will go on the speeds I currently have.
The radio server is in Germany, from what i can tell. They say they've got mega speeds and it's a bottleneck with my ISP. I know that the 50Mbps BB was supposed to get 5Mbps upload speed, but that seems to have been long forgotten. I'm trying to figure out if I need to hassle VM for the 5Mbps upload or if I'd have to upgrade, or - as I suspect - it won't make any difference.
I've tried these uploads at all times of day and night, no difference. I'm on a VM SH2 with a short cable to my PC which reports a 1.Gbps connection. The PC is fairly new and a decent spec, if it was the same speed to Telehouse then I'd be more worried, but it shows that my end isn't the issue I guess.
Thoughts? Without suggesting changing ISP's please.
