The result is that we often receive emails and letters from our magazine readers complaining that download from a particular server is slow, even though they have a 24MB/s broadband connection. Reason is that the server is located in an obscure territory, is served by a slow connection and, worse, if there are, say, 50 people connected to the server at the same time as you, the server bandwidth is shared equally between those 50 users. This means that you could quite easily be downloading at 25KB/s, rather than 1.5MB/s. That ultra fast broadband doesn't look quite so promising as advertised?
DownTester 1.05 is a free tool which you can use to test your broadband connection against various remote servers, located in different territories, so you can see how different it is downloading from a server in Japan, compared to Germany. This might help you make more informed choices in the future.
