FTP Speeds

To clarify, we do not throttle speeds below the guaranteed bandwidth of the server. If you are guaranteed 100Mbps, you should be get that speed.

If you are not getting the guaranteed speeds, I would recommend opening a support ticket. Include the results of an MTR from your local computer to the server, and an MTR from the server to your local computer. Also throw in a ping test from your home to the server.

We will analyze the data and resolve the issue.

I think I I have this dedicated server since sometime in 2013. If you ask me which server this is according to the current classification I would not know. All I know is I pay around 40.99 Euros on this. Can someone tell me which one this is according to the new classification?

But thats not why I am writing. I use CuteFTP Pro to download stuff from my server to my laptop. My internet speed is 100 mbps, while speed test fluctuates between 65mbps to 85 mbps download speed. I was complaining to someone that my download speed from OVH is only 22mbps max. And laying the blame on my ISP. I have had them check it many times and there seems to be no problem whatsoever. Till somebody pointed out that OVH throttles internet speeds. Now I don't know if this is the best place to complain about this or I have to find some other avenue to rectify this. I would like someone to suggest a way forward to solve the problem. I am not very net or tech savvy so please be adequately explanatory. Than you.
