    Seedbox.io

    I ordered a 750mbit / 900GB model from France and I took the prioritized traffic option. I was hoping for something fast but unfortunately I was dissapointed.

    It does go fast IF there's an in-house peer but even then , it cannot substain the speed for long. I would say this box has a substainable 20 Mo/s DL/UL. It bursted to around 50 Mo/s but it didn't last long. I'm not asking for a steady 750mbit but I honeslty think 20 Mo/s DL is pretty slow.

    FTP speeds are great tho , specially with their bouncer servers ! I was able to max out a 200 mbps connection (± 26 Mo/s)

    This morning I switched to the 1000mbit / 1250 GB model without traffic priority and I don't see much of a difference.

    They have an OK customer support. When I contacted them for billing issues they answered almost immediately but when I contacted them for slow speeds they deleted my ticket lol ...

    Resumé : I don't think I'll continue my service with them. It's sad because everything else than the speed is very good (Cpu power , hdd iops, interface, FTP speeds)

    THEN :

    I contacted them to be refunded but they offered me to try NL before. I accepted.#

    I now have the NL 1000mbit / 1250GB package.

    It's WAAAYYY faster than France.

    The direct FTP connection to Canada is poor but with their bouncers it's pretty good.

    I'm in the same boat as you but the difference is that I mostly use my seedbox.io to get fastest peers in France. Cuz I live in France and i'm french.

    So I dont think I should switch to NL as it's better to be close to your peers, right ?

    The speed is fair on the NL servers and I haven't found many issues however...

    When running an announce download script in mIRC I find that if I push it to hard with alot of downloads within a short timeframe rtorrent crashes and takes a few minutes to restart. Maybe this is the way it is with all shared seedboxes but if the HDD use gets to high, it crashes. This made me realize that that the actual speed is being limited by the HDD. I have never seen my ul/dl above 70 mib/s which according to the package spec I am paying for is 1500 mbits/sec or 187 mib/s (actual max is less than half of the advertised max). So any shared account above 600 mbits/sec is a BS speed rating. Sorta like getting a car that can do 200 mph but the engine can only do 100 mph, yet still advertised as a 200 mph car.

    An observation I just made to support this.. Some providers offer dedicated unmetered hosting. The cheaper packages all have low bandwidth speed caps, like 100 mbit while the hard drives can do way more. Only the more expensive ones start to offer more speed. So the higher link speeds on cheaper packages are marketing BS unless you pay big $$ for both dedicated or SSD AND a high link speed.

    I think I may in the future opt for several smaller/cheaper accounts opposed to one larger one. This way my total HDD space is around the same but I get the bandwidth and CPU spread across several accounts for around the same cost... My mIRC script can accommodate 6 local or remote seedbox/watch folders so it will be easy to try out.
