Small server speed test... if you don't pay for bandwidth and have a few moments

    Hey folks, I'm trying to compare between two different server clusters where we host our media and I'm thinking that we'll see different results for different folks based on location.

    Now, if you have a bit of time to run this test in the background, I'd appreciate it... just download these files one at a time and note the data rate you are getting (once it seems to settle into a consistent value)

    Server #1: http://mschnlnine.vo.llnwd.net/d1/ch9/1/4/3/5/6/4/HistoryofMicrosoft1985_2MB_ch9.wmv
    Server #2: http://mschannel9.vo.msecnd.net/o9/mix/HistoryofMicrosoft1985_2MB_ch9.wmv

    And if you could reply with the rate you saw, your location (at a country level would be great) and your internet connection speed ... that would be very helpful. If you think any of that information is something you don't want to tell me... that's cool too, please don't download or post if you'd rather not Smiley

    Download speeds (approximate):
    Server #1: 1.5MB/s (note Byte not bit)
    Server #2: 500KB/s

    You didn't ask for it, but anyway, traces: Smiley

    Maybe because my collegues are downloading from the MSDN Smiley

    He didn't. Some spammer did, but the spammer's post has already been removed.
