    Downloads on your site?

    I've been looking for a site host for a few weeks now, and Aletia seems good. I need a host for my shareware company, and download speed is very important to me. Do you have a site on Aletia with downloadable files? I'd like to check out the download speed.

    PS feel free to include comments about Aletia in general. Any info helps!

    Thanks dude!

    Yeah, it's pretty speedy. I owe you one!

    Do me a favor and leave it up a day? I want to run the speed test again later. If not, that's cool. You've already helped me out alot!

    Jelly Tot,

    Download speeds from Aletia are good, but you can't actually test it. The results you get depend very much on the "distance" between your ISP network and the networks Aletia is connected to.

    As far as I can tell from various tests, Aletia is well connected (through their NOC provider) to most major backbones, so performance is very good, but again your milage may vary.

    Note that if you plan to set up a busy downloads site it's better if you first arrange with Aletia to have the proper hosting plan.
