Hello I'm developing an iPhone app that downloads some reasonably chunky database files (10M-50M) my current server is hosted in the US, I am based in the UK, my download speeds aren't great, somewhere in the region of 40-50k/second on a connection I've seen run to 300k with other downloads. I am wondering if anyone knows of a way of finding hosting which would have high download speeds worldwide (US, Asia and Europe) or which would be the best compromise? Or any other solutions? Essentially I want to improve the user experience by improving download times.
Where is your server exactly located? If you're planning on staying in the US, NYC will be your best bet.
ReliableSite has excellent connectivity to the UK.
