|Help! - Speed Tests Needed Very Quickly|
Having provider trouble in Czech Republic - Need fast tests!
| 8:54 am on Sep 5, 2000 (gmt 0)|
I'm in Prague in the Czech Republic. We are having provider trouble at the moment and we need to find out which provider is the fastest when their pages are opened from abroad.
I need the measurements of connection speeds from different parts of the world - from the UK, northern, western, eastern and southern Europe, from the far east, from Australia, south America and from the US and Canada. That's why I sent this message because I hope I will find here some people willing to help me.
I would like you, please, to open the five websites which follow, and time the loading time for each page - the full loading time of the page, and the time it takes for the page to start to appear.
Then, if you could send me these download times with the time of measurement. Please, include your connection speed (and type, and provider, if you know them), your country of origin.
The websites are:
Thank you very much for your time and if you could reply to this as soon as possible, it would really help me a lot.

56k dial-up. Speed seems normal on all sites I've visited so far today. Connecting from the Mid-Atlantic states.
worldonline.cz = slow, more than 50 seconds. How do you say "I would have bailed" in Czech?
volny.cz = significantly rendered screen in 10 seconds. I would have stayed.
pragonet.cz = significantly rendered screen in 5 seconds. I would have stayed.
luko.cz = significantly rendered screen in 5 seconds. I would have stayed.
kpn-qwest.cz = significantly rendered screen in 15 seconds. I would have stayed.

I would have bailed - that would be: "Ja bych se odesel." Pronounced: "Ya bich (not like bitch) se od-e-shell."
Thanks for all your help everyone, it's much appreciated. Keep it coming. And if I can be of any help to you just email: firstname.lastname@example.org

first url very slow, refresh and blank screen nothing happned for 20secs apart from the little icon in the browser rotating! 60 secs overall
Would normally have given up.
2nd url faster but the 4th slowest of all.
Things are slow here normally anyway, but compared with other sites, main problem is that you dont get much apart from the banner.
Im of the view that total download dosent matter as much as how fast it takes for seomeone to seriously start reading, even if down the page it is still downloading.
