Server to Chose

Thu Jun 11, 2015 7:15 pm

Is there a right way to select the server through which to direct all traffic? If I look in "Traffic" at upload and download speeds Melbourne appears to be the best and Frankfurt about the worst. However If I redirect though Melbourne, half the world away, my internet seems very slow. Through Frankfurt it is much better. I do not think I care how I redirect as long as I get optimum performance. Thanks.

Curious about this myself, as for me Turkey and Egypt show the best download 'performance', Australia one of the worst. Which isn't what I'd expect :scratch

Generally though you should consider the servers with the lowest ping when redirecting all traffic.

47kb ? That can't be right, will ask they guys to have a look at that. I'm out of town next few days, so either they'll reply or I'll be back Monday.
