IPv4 vs IPv6 speeds
From my home connection (Verizon FIOS in NJ) I was able to pretty much max out the FIOS connection, averaging 3.16MByte/s, peaking (for long periods) at 3.65MB/s. Not bad!
From my Fremont Linode the speeds varied wildly from 1MB/s to 4MB/s, but averaged slower than my FIOS connection. Meh.
But then I noticed he was on IPv6 as well. So I did the same speed test via IPv6… 7.42MB/s, peaking to 9.8MB/s.
Wow, the IPv6 connection was easily 3 times better than the IPv4 connection. Neat stuff
While 64-bit architectures are only marginally faster than 32-bit architectures, 128-bit architectures are massively faster.
Yeah File transfers on windows 8 x128 is way faster!
