Since moving to the boonies I have had to think about our internet situation quite a bit. We have gone from a reasonable NBN connection in the city to fixed wireless in the bush. While our general download speeds are ok, for some reason some of our traffic is either being limited or its just being routed poorly.
Same ISP but different internet technology and downloading server backups has gone from 5 Meg/s to 1/2 a Meg/s, try downloading 7Gig of data at that slow speed HAHAHA.
So anyway, its meant trying to find a better server host with a better pipeline into Australia or a host based in Australia. And after spending the morning speed testing a bunch of different hosts, i found one that is slightly better than the one I had.
So here we are, everything has been migrated over and the site is backup and running again and everyone is none the wiser.
