Which servers should I use on the East Coast to test connection speed?
While speedtest.net is an amazing tool – you must realize that the majority of the servers there have a limit on bandwidth speed. Some are bound to 100Mbits/s, some are 150Mbits/s.
To test the real true speed when you are using one of our east coast servers – go to speedtest.net and click on “Change Server” in the bottom right, and select “Rochester Institute of Technology”. For the time being – their server seems to be connected to a 10Gbits/s connection, which makes it one of the best servers to run tests on.
Usually other servers throughout the globe that rarely throttle VPNs on speedtest website are the fdcservers ones. Try your connection towards them, and you should generally see improved results.
