American CDN for FlightSimStore Purchases

Recommended Posts

Please excuse my ignorance, but what is this and why should I download it? And, how do I determine which one to download?

Thanks,

Howard

It is test files for if you want to test the speeds of the American FSS server, just a convenience for all Northern American customers, that is all

I downloaded the 1GB from the American Server and speed varied but averaged about 1.3 to 1.5 Mb Sec.

Fast download = files reach you before the bill does. :D

The positive view on things.

Thanks for those additional servers.

I downloaded the 100 meg file... Full 25mbit speed no problem at all. Also It didn't take that long to spool up to that speed.

Only 333kb/sec. This is the biggest downfall to any Orbx purchases. I pay for 3mb/s down, test at that, but get 1/3 of a mb/s from FSS :(

I had a look at your ISP/IP in my server logs mate and I would suggest to contact your ISP because they are limiting your downstream via a command in your connection. Comcast in Canada used to do that as well and it took quite a while before I got them to stop that practice. That is just one example though

I guess there is nothing for us poor Canucks! Currently dl'ing some heavy shopping at FSS (thanks to the sale!) and it's the slowest it's ever been.

Always a good idea is to stop your download, go back into your account and click on the download link again, if you are using a download manager it will resume but it will take the fastest server available to you :)

Hi Jae

I see you are busy with server matters but wanted to let you know that the download for the freeware BOB walk around feture is borked badly i have tried to dlownload it for over 24 hours and the download gets dropped at about 1 MB or so, over and over. I am unable to register here fully as i havent purchased any products yet, i plan to but had hoped to have access to the forum to ask some content quesitons but are we only allowed to register if we have purchased product? thank you

I don't need to use the test, I'm always at 1.25 locked using DownThemAll.


 


Hey, what does CDN mean (server), in my book it's Canadian money ::)


 


So should I buy something today just to test it >:D

I downloaded the 100 MB file in 34 seconds.  It ran at 6.89MB/sec for the first 20 MB or so and then dropped back to 2.9 MB for the rest of the file.  I live in south central Pennsylvania and have Comcast.
