I just got a Windows VPS from xsserver. I did a speed test and these are the results: download = 100.94 mb/s upload = 5.87 mb/s I was very happy with these results as that is much faster then my connection at home which is: download = 16.48 mb/s upload = 0.94 mb/s I assumed that my Scrapebox posting would be significantly faster so I did an experiment to compare the the VPS to my home computer. I ran an auto-approve list of 5626 urls using fast poster on both the VPS and my home computer/connection. The VPS finished the list in 24 minutes and 10 seconds My home computer finished the list in 23 minutes and 32 seconds. Both runs had very similar success rates in posting. Does anyone know why the VPS is not outperforming my home connection? I used the same 10 squid proxies for both runs. Will using more proxies help? What other factors determine speed?
