New Speed Test available

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

The old internal speed test (Speed Test Mini) has several issues: it is a closed source 3rd party application, it requires Flash and its reliability when used with high bandwidth line is extremely poor.

 

A new speed test has been implemented in order to overcome the aforementioned limitations.

 

It has been entirely developed by us, it provides customizations to make tests more reliable, it does not require Flash and importantly it performs tests outside and inside the tunnel.  The idea behind this last feature is to measure the performance difference inside the tunnel, in order to have hints on bottlenecks (if any) which may be caused by your ISP (through traffic shaping, for example) or by various factors, such as packet inspection tools, Internet "security suites" and CPU power.

 

Be aware that it's still in an experimental stage, so your feedback will be very welcome.

 

The URL is:

 

https://airvpn.org/speedtest_ex

 

In order to use it, you need to log in the web site with the same account and the same device that is connected to one of our VPN servers.

 

The menus are quite self-explicative, anyway do not hesitate to contact us for any clarification and feel free to send us your feedback or any remark about any issue.

 

Kind regards

I am more than happy with my up/download speeds but in this test it seemed like i got about half of what i actually get with DL and about 20% less than normal with UL

Thank you very much for your feedback, this is exactly what we need. Additionally, can you please post the parameters you have used (manually or automatically) for the test, if you can? Just copy and paste the text that appears on the lower box when the test(s) is/are over.

 

Kind regards

Chose 50 mb instead of 10. "

Out-Tunnel Speed:

0 - error -"

 

In-Tunnel Speed: Skipped.

 

Did it again with 20mb. Usually getting about 23 mbps/4,5mbps in actual speed

 

Down: 9.947 Mbit/s Out, 9.124 Mbit/s In (91%), 20MB - Up: 3.119 Mbit/s Out, 2.884 Mbit/s In (92%), 20MB - Date: Thu, 08 Aug 2013 23:17:26 GMT - Buffers: 20MB/20MB - Laps: 1, Time: 74.94 secs

Yea, I've no idea why my downstream is so slow--I'm on a 1Gbit fiber line that runs quickly sans VPN.  I'm not blaming it on Air as I've tried nearly all the servers with various ports and protocols to the same result.  I stick now to the server with the best ping (Puppis) and my uploads are surprisingly fast so it's not all bad.

If i leave the settings to detect it works but if i change the settings i get an error but the speed test is good overall compared to other options.

Hi, i recently switched to Linux Mint (First time linux user) from Windows 7.

 

I have reconfigured my AirVPN account to work on Linux after many hours of trying to get it to work correctly.

 

I used the http://ipleak.net/  website to ensure i was using the Airvpn service and everything appeared to be working normally. 

 

However i have just tried the new AirVPN speed test and it is not detecting my DL/UP speed at all.

 

Is there something wrong with my AirVPN config?  BTW when will you have a client for Linux?

 

Thanks for your help.

When I run it all I get is error's saying NaN. I've tried detect and setting to 10MB buffer and same error either way. I ran test from Andromedae 443

i'm on optic fiber ( sdsl) and speed loss is negligable.

 

but why that upspeed of four times the down speed, is that a bug?

 

it keeps happening with every test so it wasn't just the one time.

Using other speed tests, I get 16Mb - 18Mb down speed in and out of tunnel. Up speeds are same either way.

I am on a cable Internet connection and I tested early in the morning, when I would expect to have maximum bandwidth and the DL and UL speeds are very close to the maximum I ever achieve. I shall have to re-test in the late afternoon and evening when traffic on the network is much heavier.

 

But these speeds, for my area, are very good.!

 

 

Down: 9.505 Mbit/s Out, 9.349 Mbit/s In (98%), 20MB - Up: 1.341 Mbit/s Out, 1.246 Mbit/s In (92%), 10MB - Date: Sat, 21 Sep 2013 12:10:39 GMT - Buffers: 20MB/10MB - Laps: 1, Time: 149.93 secs

Currently on a fairly slow ADSL connection, pretty much corresponds to the speed I have without the airvpn client, maybe some 10% slower but still very good (for what is available where I live).

Hm, this is really interesting, just got VDSL today, have an actual down speed of 52Mb without VPN and up of about 5, with AIR on I have the following, does appear to be a bit much?

 

Down: 1.123 Mbit/s Out, 0.655 Mbit/s In (58%), 1MB - Up: 6.172 Mbit/s Out, 5.648 Mbit/s In (91%), 20MB - Date: Wed, 26 Feb 2014 20:45:11 GMT - Buffers: 1MB/20MB - Laps: 3, Time: 155.32 secs
 

Interestingly enough my upload speed is better than earler

Did an additional test with the closes server and best ping, a lot better really:

 

Down: 14.490 Mbit/s Out, 3.293 Mbit/s In (22%), 20MB - Up: 6.189 Mbit/s Out, 6.125 Mbit/s In (98%), 20MB - Date: Wed, 26 Feb 2014 21:13:12 GMT - Buffers: 20MB/20MB - Laps: 3, Time: 172.93 secs

 

really good speeds considered that it is fully protected

I think that the answer to that question will be to pick one that is geographically closest to where you are. There is a ping table found in the status section that will also tell you this information.

 

After that (finding the right region) it will be a matter of accessing them and do a simple speed test  I guess.

Thanks for this- since I upgraded my keys and certificates I thought there might have been a problem with the VPN connection, but it's just my back-country broadband which is noticeably worse than ever. We've been told we'll never get cable here so this is as good as it gets

I am trying to run the speed test across different devices, and find that it crashes on a regular basis when run on my iPad2. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Hi - I'm new to vpn and am trying to get this set up.  I don't understand why I don't have In Tunnel speeds, in fact I don't fully understand the term.

I'd be very grateful if anyone could shed some light or throw me some suggestions...?

 

(Yes I know I have to read up some more, but I've just spent days trying to configure FWs and I have read so much that i just can't read anymore, for now)

 

Down: 1.230 Mbit/s Out, 0.000 Mbit/s In (0%), 2MB - Up: 0.816 Mbit/s Out, 0.000 Mbit/s In (0%), 2MB - Date: Fri, 16 May 2014 17:15:21 GMT - Buffers: 2MB/2MB - Laps: 3, Time: 102.08 secs
 

Edit: By using a different browser, Opera, I got both In-Tunnel and Out-Tunnel results. Both browsers (F Fox) have the same firewall privileges so it must be in the browser settings, but I didn't investigate which settings it may be.

 

Opera
Down: 2.123 Mbit/s Out, 2.005 Mbit/s In (94%), 2MB - Up: 0.222 Mbit/s Out, 0.198 Mbit/s In (89%), 2MB - Date: Sun, 18 May 2014 04:57:42 GMT - Buffers: 2MB/2MB - Laps: 3, Time: 554.05 secs

Actually, I have the same thing. I'm not alone with this, that's great!

Additionally, I can tell you that my display driver crashes when it tries to initiate the In-Tunnel Download speed test. Both tests show 0 MBit/s In-Tunnel speed. What does a display driver have in common with OpenVPN, I ask?
