1gbps upgrade

Hi, has anyone else upgraded to 1gbps?

I upgraded and they say it's activated but the speeds are still only around 1.5MB/s > 3.5MB/s

This is only about 25mbps, not even the standard 100mbps.

Yet I pay for 1gbps... the speed is not even any faster. On a VPS from another provider on 1gbps I get 50MB/s, here I get 1.5MB/s!

    I can achieve up to 12MB/sec outgoing. This is a 100mbps connection, so the upgrade does nothing...

    Really depends on the location. Some test on 1TB storage with 1Gbps:

    Vilnius, Lithuania:

    Siauliai, Lithuania:

    Frankfurt, Germany:

    Milan, Italy:

    Athens, Greece:

    In this case if the port speed has not changed for you, to investigate the situation it would be required for you to perform iperf3 and MTR tests to and from your server and provide the results via ticket in client area.

    Those speeds do vary, however my upload is 3MB/sec which is only 24mbps. I'd expect at least over 100mbps from the UK.

    Another provider is much much faster.

    I'll try the iperf3 and MTR

    See below, our server 530 Mbits/sec, time4vps 64.9 Mbits/sec, far from a 1gbps port.

    which co-incides with the current speed

    sending incremental file list

    test/

    test/testx

        396,525,568  11%    7.20MB/s    0:07:11  


    fluxuates between 5MB/s and 8MB/sec

    The 63.6 Mbits/sec shown in iperf is 8MB/sec

    I was looking to, but I can't seem to find the option in the UI anymore. Only add-on I see is for additional IP addresses.

    On existing accounts you need to email support and they add it for you

    Hi tarasis,

    the 1 Gbps Port Speed cannot be ordered as an addon anymore, unfortunately. However, you can order 1 Gbps Port Speed as a component to your VPS. It can be added while purchasing a new VPS. If you already have an active VPS, please create a support ticket and me or my colleague will add this component manually to your VPS.
