Starhub Sucks

Starhub are still throttling international traffic on port 80and here’s the proof. Downloading the same file, from the same server, at the same time, is nine times faster if you do it on a port other than port 80.

I tested with a ten-megabyte file of random junk. At full speed, the download took one minute and six seconds; on port 80, it took nine minutes and fifty seconds.

I’m going to have to set up a proxy server in the USA to get the performance that I’m paying for.
