Since a couple of weeks ago my stats are like this:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 451 Kbps about 0.45 Mbps (tested with 1013 kB)

Download Speed is:: 55 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/04/06 - 7:37pm

Bottom Line:: 8X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 18.62 sec

Tested from a 1013 kB file and took 18.414 seconds to complete

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/418 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/417.9.2

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 64.06 % of your hosts average (com.ar)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-KYIRL49WX

This is specially low, from time to time goes up to 66 kB/s. But not so long ago the worst stat used to be 100 kB/s or so, usually 120 KB/s.

Any clue?

I would have to say thats its a distance thing. going from Argentina to the US is a very far distance about 4500 - 6000 miles.

what are you adertised speeds?

I know about the distance, but in all my time here it's the first time with such low stats in a long period.

By the way, the alternative mirrors are giving me terrible slow stats too...

My internet provider is: 2.5 M download and 256 kbps upload.

I'm on a Mac. Even then I know there's no spyware or virus, and no need to defrag the disk.

Cookies, cache and history are constantly cleaned. And, the local check shows everything ok, from my machine to the internet provider. Of course, an this is usual if you go "overseas" with your connection, could be a problem in some of the international exit nodes.

FallowEarth, if you can take some clear idea from all that "mambo jumbo"...Anyway, thanks for your concern.

Euskir, those pings are high and the trace is bad.  If you have a router, then try bypassing it and running another traceroute.

Otherwise, try powercycling your network by leaving your devices powered off for a while.  What is the topography of your network (ie. how is it set up)?

It may be as simple as a bad cable causing this, but it could also be bad hardware or network congestion.  Since the first 3 hops timeout it's hard to tell, but you'll notice the spike in times at hop 7.  That's a telltale sign that there is a network (seabone.net) undergoing some maintenance and is balancing an abnormally high amount of the load onto the network we are seeing in the trace.  This type of thing will usually clear up in a few days.  Keep an eye on your traceroutes to see for sure.  Otherwise, I'd call up your ISP.

Welcome to the forum, machine.  We like to keep things as on topic as possible on this board.  If you have concerns about your speeds, please start a new topic and we'll be happy to help you.

FallowEarth:

Thanks for your words, and your analysis of my ping and traceroute stats. I think it's a network congestion, because the test between my ISP and my machine is ok, downloading between 315 and 320 KB/s, and that's the 2,5 MB speed the service is offering. There's something they call "international exit", I understand some of the nodes from the country to the outside world, and they didn't control that. I've got a cable modem just straight to my computer, no router.

Can you provide a traceroute to your ISP?  Argentina right?  Unfortunately, we do not have a test mirror very close to you.

I found a contact for the Seabone network: [email protected]

If your traceroute doesn't get better, and your ISP is no help, you may need to contact this network handling the link, and ask them to optimize the route.  Provide as much info as you can, including traceroutes performed over at least a couple of days, at different times.  They will usually help.

Thanks for the "double extra" tip.

Since the begining of my "testmy experience" I knew about the "distance issue", but testmy is a very good and reliable place for download and upload tests. And I think if you keep some kind of follow up to the stats, then you can have a pretty good idea of your speed behavior, even if you're, like me, in Argentina.

If I try to traceroute my ISP (http://www.fibertel.com.ar) all I get is this:

1  * * *

2  * * *

3  * *

And it's on 51 now, but no other information.

Here all the ISP is saying, like ever, it's that the problem it's from an international node, because the connection between my computer and them it's ok.

Well that's not very helpful at all.  I would do as I suggested in reply #17 about contacting Seabone with the info.  I had to contact a backbone once about improving the route to this site.  They resolved it within a couple of weeks (be patient).
