Hey, anyone facing painfully slow speeds on DigitalOcean international servers? I have a 50 Mbps plan with Alliance, West Bengal. The speeds are above 40 Mbps on DO Bangalore servers. For New York servers, speed is 3 Mbps up-down. Even Singapore servers don't go beyond 20 Mbps. Can you please search for "digitalocean speedtest" and test your speeds for international servers and mention them here, along with your plan and ISP?

DigitalOcean sucks on my Powernet connection (1-2MB/s) whereas other servers can hit 15-20MB/s. Powernet uses TATA

On my TriplePlay I can max out any DO Server at 11MB/s (uses Airtel+Jio for transit)

I am also facing the same issue , my local isp is using tata backbone and the DigitalOcean speeds rarely goes above 4 mbps. I think there maybe issues in the tata core network. ... I think people having airtel transit maybe not be facing issues as such

@Realme No, they don't give login through PPPoE. They give a static local IP to each customer (NAT). Then you need to login to their portal using your password and user id when you turn on your router, just as you would at your university. Every time you log in, you are assigned a public IP dynamically. 103.x.x.x IPs are generally on Airtel backbone, 115.x.x.x are on Airtel backbone. They also use Vodafone backbone in Kolkata (I'm not from Kolkata and have never used Vodafone transit.)

If you turn on Autologin, they bind the MAC of your router to your static NATed IP. The public IP doesn't change as they assign a static public IP to you and just map your static NATed IP to a public IP (which is shared by many others at your location). This public IP doesn't change frequently. I guess they manually need to change it. So, they change the public after 40-50 days or so. However, the ports are blocked.

POOR NETWORKING STRATEGY!!!

So now my isp uses airtel for international tranist for some days instead of tata. The speeds are improved a bit as i can say the speeds reaches 7 to 8mbps on nyc servers instead of 4 mbps on tata tranist. But its nowhere near the plan speeds. Anyone here has a isp using jio for international transit . do they also have the speed issues to DigitalOcean servers?

I raised a ticket with Alliance. They checked it with Airtel backbone and the issue persists. They also checked with Jio (one of their employees have Jio at home, they are all working from home). They are all facing this issue. I have raised a ticket with DO now.
