I currently have 2 links of 20 Mbps on my hand and wanted to test them internationally and nationally.

I already have the 2 national links for test but am having problems finding some good international link with 100/1000 Mbps link that will allow me to get the max out of these 2 links I have.

Would appreciate if you guys could point me out some sources that would fit this.

What does "nationally" mean? – chx Jan 13 '11 at 19:42 – Prix Jan 13 '11 at 19:49
If you're stress testing the links then surely you don't need to do this internationally? Your in country link should be sufficient for that. – Iain Jan 13 '11 at 20:37
@lain ofc I do that does not guarantee they will have the same band free for external network, or they could have a saturated external network for example if they have brought a GigE link for external network and they have the entire GigE in use i would never have a consistent 20 Mbps with the exterior. – Prix Jan 13 '11 at 21:56

Why don't you try downloading a couple of Linux Distro isos? They're usually mirrored in various places with high speed links. For example or ??

good idea thanks I will check some of the mirrors. – Prix Jan 13 '11 at 21:57

Have you tested on ?

Thanks but I need download links for this test. 100mb to 500mb files on a 100 Mbps higher network that is not fully saturated. This is more of a stress test to see how stable the links are. – Prix Jan 13 '11 at 20:04
