    EDIT: 4-28-2010 please see last post.

    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?

    Thanks!

    i find the ftp speed fluctuates through the day ...

    what you need to do is get a FTP client that can transfer using multiple connections... this way you are guaranteed to max your bandwith...

    just keep increasing connections until you're as high as you wanna go

    Thanks for the help, but my results are still shittier than before even when I increase my normal amount of threads. With the same exact software and settings on my pc and server, it still sucks.

    Sanka113 are your torrent speeds slow too ? if they aren't, maybe it's a problem with your FTP configuration etc.

    And are you in US ?

    FTP Config ( tried vftpd and proftpd) and Torrent speeds seem fine. Weird.

    I have the same problem. OVH ftp speeds go up only to 3mbits during the night and 1mbit during the day.
    Guess this country:
    -Child porn is legal to possess.
    -Home of lolicon & enjo kosai
    -Subways are littered with "Warning: Perverts lurking" signs
    -Has women only subway cars because of the high sexual assault rates
    -Cartoon child porn is a $6 billion industry
    -90% of child porn on the internet is from this country
    -Ranked equally with Cambodia and Ethiopia for prostitution

    yeah everything to do with ovh has been bad lately. FTP speeds are more than half of what they used to be.

    On these kinds of servers, it's not a surprise to not get your max home line speed with FTP, especially if your ping is high due to the distance between you and the datacenter (if you are in US for example).

    The best you can do is to use a multi-parts FTP downloader. I noticed Free Download Manager, Internet download manager and CuteFTP. Others clients like Filezilla only support multithreading with differents files, but only one connection per file whereas the others can use several connections even for one file.

    Sometimes it's also a problem with the settings of the server or on your home installation (an external router/NAT, an antivirus/firewall scanning in real time the traffic etc.)
