Trying to download from OVH (http://bhs.proof.ovh.net/files/100Mio.dat)

- In China's home network (Shanghai): avg. 9 KB/s
- In DigitalOcean's LAX1 (Los Angeles) data center: avg. 11 KB/s
- In DigitalOcean's NYC3 (New York) data center: over 10 MB/s
- In AWS EC2 us-west-2 (Oregon, US): over 2 MB/s
- From fate.ffmpeg.org (somewhere in France): about 13 MB/s

In comparison: DigitalOcean FRA1 (Frankfurt I believe)

- China: avg. 2 KB/s (yeah, that's right)
- DO LAX1: avg. 10 MB/s
- DO NYC3: avg. 10 MB/s
- AWS us-west-2: avg. 2 MB/s
- fate: 100 MB/s

In comparison: AWS EC2 eu-central-1 (curl -o /dev/null

- China avg. 5 KB/s
- DO LAX1: avg. 10 KB/s
- DO NYC3: >400 KB/s (can't be measured accurately)
- AWS us-west-2: >100 KB/s (can't be measured accurately)
- fate: >2 MB/s (can't be measured accurately)

Only the China test is actually from a home connection. Everything
else is from a dedicated server connection.
