For each of our data center locations we operate a test server (also known as a looking glass) as follows:
Fremont, CA, USA:
These servers are normal virtual machines on our VPS platform.
While performing a transfer from our test servers isn’t a definitive test of available bandwidth it should help you form an idea of what an Internet link throughput is.
wget -O /dev/null
avoids skewed results caused by disk performance limitations so for example you could use
wget -O /dev/null https://lg-uk1.bhost.net/100MB.test
to wget the 100MB test file from our UK1 London test server.
