I have gigabit symmetrical at home. Why am I only able to download files from it at around 60mbps from outside of my home network?
It's a single, large file, and my connection (from outside the home) is around 200mbps. The file also isn't going through any proxy or the like - just continuous bytes.
Can someone explain this?
@thatayush That's what I might not be understanding. At least on fast.com, I'm getting nearly a gig up.
Is there something in regard to the TCP congestion window from my server, or is this out of my control?
@ryan this is likely due to netflix having a peer with your isp, which shows up these speeds. Try running a speedtest.net one with a server in florida, could explain the thing then.
Also pro tip you could make a one-time use vpn with wireguard and some vps provider, depending on how good they perform for you. I have a script ready for a one-device vpn if you're up for it lol
Come as you are, but be prepared to discuss all code, web development, cooking, dogs, and coffee.
