Tunnel Bandwidth
« on: November 14, 2008, 06:29:55 PM »

It looks as if the tunnels are rate limited. If so what is the limit? From what I can tell it looks like the tunnel is limited to 50Kb/s of traffic.  What options are there for us bandwidth junkies who want to be able to download fast using IPv6?  I thought I read there were paid tunnels that HE offers.
Thanks in advance for your responses.

There is no rate limit configured on the tunnels. Remember to take into account that this is 6 over 4, and that the packets still need to take your ipv4 path to the tunnel-server. I've been watching some of the graphs we have and easily have seen some users (usually those in colo that are <1-10ms away from the tunnel-server) push and pull over 10mbit. I know one user runs a radio stream over his in Ashburn, and pushes 100Kbit/s+

I can put up a large file somewhere if you want to test for v6 only. I also recommend trying the ubuntu ipv6 tracker and see how that works for a test as well: http://ipv6.torrent.ubuntu.com/

I usually get anywhere from 8 - 22 mbits with just my laptop when connecting to my native IPv6 colo.

Thanks for the replies. I am downloading Ubuntu right now using BitTornado with the IPV6 connections hitting around 600Kb/s.  Broquea: it would be awesome if you could post a file for users to download so they could see how fast their tunnels are.   8)

It is working for me now. I am on Verizon Fios and I hit 18Mbit and 4500Kbit upload. Sweet! ;D
