    Hi guys!

    I need a big favor from everybody :)

    I'm currently testing a server located in the UK and I want to know what download speed does it have in various locations.

    Here's a link: http://tinyurl.com/ to a 15 mb test file called 'test'. Please click that link, download the file and then tell me the following:

    Your connection speed (ex. broadband)
    The actual download speed for the 'test' file (ex. 100 kb/s)
    Your location (I would appreciate it if you could post the country and town from where you have downloaded it) (ex. USA, FL, Miami)

    If you're not comfortable posting this information please PM :)
    SEMrush
    P.S. The test file doesn't contain any malicious content so it's safe. I have good rep here and I think that I'm a trusted member here so, please have faith that nothing bad will happen.

    Thanks a lot,
    Vlad

    Well, if you are looking for more, maybe you should pay attention to the peoples request and give a real URL instead of tiny URL...

    Using tinyurl just makes me suspicious of both the file and your intentions.

    OK, here's the link without tinyurl :
    http://streetraces.us/test

    I don't get it why did I receive an infraction point? Is it illegal to post a link to something and hide your URL with tinyurl? :( Also, why does the reason say : "Affiliate link" ?? :confused: because it's not.... I don't know what's happening to DP nowadays...

    I wanted to hide the URL because I didn't want the spiders to pick-up this link...
