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.
