I'd be interested in speed comparisons between ISPs.
With some caution, and a few lines of code inserted, it is
possible to run Carl's speed test on your webserver:
* add a shebang at the very top
* Insert these lines before the /print "running"/
print "Content-type: text/html^/"
* replace the /halt/ with these lines:
If you are running on a shared server, then one test may hit a
busy patch and give you unrepresentatively slow values. Probably
need to run once an hour or so for a few hours and evaluate the
range of responses you are seeing.
I can tell you that the last time I tried it for REBOL.org we got
disk speed values suggesting the drive runs on rusty clockwork.
