After not having OVH for a few months I finally got back on with them. Unfortunately, my FTP speeds are half as fast as they were a few months ago. Even though, I have exactly the same setup in regards to how my server and ftp client is setup as I had before, that maxed out my connection at 500 kilobytes/s. The company (located in poland) I was with during my OVH hiatus maxed out my connection So i don't think it's a problem with my line personally. Can anyone shed any light on their OVH FTP speeds and tell me if something has changed in the past 3 months?
