I am having a problem with my download speed (ADSL) at home with my home router (a Comtrend device) I have done a benchmark of my download speed on may occasions using wifi and ethernet connections.
I found out that at different times through the day I get different speeds ranging from 99%-100% of the bandwidth in the morning to 10%-20% at night. these numbers happen when I am downloading using only one connection (default browser download).
When switching to multithreading in downloads, using multiple chunks and connections (Internet Download Manager, JDownloader, etc…), I get 99%-100% of the speed all day long.
My benchmarks were done using the sam file form the same server (Mega.co).
My questions are:
- How much is this difference in downstream speed due to the server I am downloading from?
- Is there more benchmarks I need to perform to get a better understanding?
- And is there a known way of pushing the speed to its max on single thread downloading?
