Can be, depends upon which device is doing the 'work'/whether over wifi etc. That ping looks familiar to me when connected.

I've a steady 40mb 'bare' connection, and connect through a router. On wifi via my laptop best I can expect is about 22-25MB/s, but via ethernet get around 33Mb/s. How I test that speed has a influence, too. Speedtest.net will show it as being slower than command line tools such as speedtest-cli or when using scp or whatever.

If stuff works I tend not to worry much.

..on testing it. 16-18Mb/s wifi and 18-26Mb/s ethernet.

Have some output, if you like -

@OP

The network port on the UK server is 100Mb/s as opposed to the newer servers which are 1Gb/s - I'm guessing that's why you're seeing such crappy speeds. Could you run a test against (perhaps) the NL, DE and FR servers and post in the speed test thread (see my sig.) for posterity?

Thanks. :)

There's no updated UK server yet, but there will be soon.
