Speed & Ping Tests for Cloud Hosting Providers
- Speed tests for each region of each provider (there are over 80) can use up to 100MB of data. Be careful if your ISP caps your data usage!
- Files are downloaded via HTTP (not HTTPS) to get pure speed without encryption overhead.
- Tests can always be influenced by outside variables. Run the scripts multiple times if you want to ensure accuracy. Evil throttling ISPs can mess up the results too, of course.
- If it looks like the script has crashed, the current test is probably just taking a while — especially when testing far-away regions. If you already know that testing other continents is futile, just remove them from the for loops in
- Thank you to CloudHarmony for providing AWS and GCP endpoints for testing!
If you trust me (which you shouldn't, please don't trust random people on the internet!) these commands will download and run the scripts automatically:
wget -qO - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jakejarvis/datacenter-speed-tests/master/ping.sh | bash
wget -qO - https://raw.githubusercontent.com/jakejarvis/datacenter-speed-tests/master/speed.sh | bash
Or, clone the repository and make sure the scripts are executable before running:
git clone https://github.com/jakejarvis/datacenter-speed-tests.git
chmod +x ping.sh && chmod +x speed.sh
Providers & Regions
Scripts will test speed and pings to the following data centers:
