Even when i try anything from http://proof.ovh.net/ i get around 300k download speed. But my server only gives me 70-100k :/

Fair enough, the confusing part to me is why 94.*.*.* ovh servers peer great to me, but 188.*.*.* do not? It makes no sense:/ Doesn't matter what i try or what i change. It still ends up the same fast from 94 servers and slow from 188. If i could proxy thru a 94 or switch to a server located where they are. I would love that. I know what i am saying makes no sense, and it shouldn't. But its the reality i am faced with. What would you do if you were me?

Hi ShankedGolfer,

Rilly is essentially correct. All of our servers are located in France. Buying from UK or IE or IT...it doesn't change where the server is physically located. And as explained by support email, we do not yet have peering in North America.

It doesn't matter where you buy the server - they are all in 1 of 3 possible datacentres all within France.. Living in UK and buying a server from OVH won't make a difference.. they could be on the same rack side by side.

Regarding "why sell to us/ca".. this is actually why for the longest time they haven't sold to USA or at least the reason they gave.. Peering and billing (they used to sell to Canada before then stopped).. they wouldn't guarantee the peering. I don't believe they've done any improvements to the peering - they've just decided to allow us to order through .ie (but - someone correct me if I'm wrong there!)

OVH isn't a great host if you want good speeds to Canada. You'll have better luck with a US company (and server.lu isn't too bad as long as the datacentre power failures stop).

Put my ticket in and after some back and forth.......they say it looks like either something i have setup that limits ftp or its my isp. How the hell can it be my isp when i have tried many 94.* series(OVH) servers and get awesome speeds. Yet mine wont peer to North America :/ Why sell to us/ca and limit transfer speeds. If i lived in the uk and bought one i could peer no problem to Canada WTF!!! I took a screen shot of http transfer from my server to my house 122k and another screen shot using another ovh server as the proxy. I got 1.5 MB/s........... ya its def my isp that is throttling me LMFAO.....They didn't say anything about that, just that they needed to try to download the file themselves. Of course when they try to download the file everything seems fine. Do you have a server in Canada to transfer to? Everyone told me don't go back to ovh, "You will regret it" turns out they were right. I do regret it. Guess its back to server.lu for me......small HD's but at least i can get decent speeds to my house.

They were all giga's. Two eg best of's and one eg amd.....all older models no 188.* ip addy.

Sadly the only good segmented ftp for mac is captain ftp. It only splits files into 4. I tried cuteftp for mac and it was bare bones I have been using a santrex france proxy to download thru FF. Unfortunately it doesn't allow ftp programs But i get 900k from it. Funny thing is, when i whois the ip. Its a 94.*.*.* ovh server..........

Probably due to their SLA. Are they all the same type of server?

In the meantime, I would just multi thread download to get your speeds up. Cute FTP Pro is the best one for Windows since it can multi thread a large single file, in case you didn't have rars on your server.

My speeds range from 100K to 450 K in general. I have a mix of low priority and premium bandwidth.. and they are all the same.. when I'm only getting 100K on one, its the same on all of them.

I just went and tried my brother in laws server on ovh. He lives in the UK so he got his from .co.uk and i get 1.7 MB/s from it. The highest i have seen on mine is 122k-180k On average i'd say the hold at 100k per connection. This is just wrong

Right now i have 3 files transferring 97k, 94k and 111k

Not sure if its just a routing issue, but when i run a traceroute its only going 7 hops including my router.

Any suggestions?
Me too ..I thought I was the only one..I have been getting a poor FTP speed connection
