    Default Query on SITI Broadband

    I've recently switched to siti broadband from bsnl as the service of bsnl was very poor. Nw I'm on siti winner_512kbps plan that closely resemblances with the bsnl 545 ULD I had. I'm very satisfied with the performance of Siti. Low pings, nice downloading(>65 KB/s) as far as the plan is concerned, good uploading(55-60 KB/s), decent torrent speeds at 2-3mbps, no connection drops at all even during long rainy days or storms. My question is-

    When I test the speed of the connection through Speedtest.net 's Vodafone servers at kolkata(or anywhere in India) the download speeds are shown almost 2Mbps which is much greater than the plan's speed . But from MTS servers or any other, the speed stays close to 580-600Kbps which is almost same as the plan. There are websites like softpedia, music etc from which i'm able to download at even 300KB/s but every websites else give normal speeds at 65 KB/s. I'm posting the speedtest.net screenshots to help you understand better what i'm saying. So whats the reason behind this huge difference in speeds?

    Which ever server is giving you higher speed then your plan is connected to the same bandwidth provider as your own ISP. Siti broadband most probably have peering enabled and they let users in their own network connect at a higher rate then your plan that you pay for.

    Thanks Admin but to my knowledge peering works on torrent that's why torrent downloads are fast because of enabled CacheBT. Then how are the Vodafone and a few more servers giving the high speeds? They might not work through cacheBT, I think.

    As long as the traffic remains within the own network and does not take a transit route the speeds will be higher due to peering and it does not matter if thats torrents or http traffic or ftp etc. Peering shoild not be confused with the term peers for torrents.

    Local Peering is not limited to Torrents only some http content is also peered.

    These are some of the sites which SITI broadband caches.
