I have a Balance 310 with two ISP connected to it at work, one with Videotron and the other with Bell. (I’m in Canada). The Videotron is a 60MB download and 10MB upload over Cable DHCP, and Bell is a 18MB download and 7MB upload. I have two VPN connection setup so I can connect over one or the other if one connection fails. I work from home and I have the same Videotron 60/10 kind of connection.
Now here is the problem…
If I connect through the Videotron VPN and upload something using the terminal (Mac OS) with ssh and rsync, I get speed of 100 to 300 kB/s.
If I connect throught the Bell VPN using the same protocol I get speed of 500kB/s-to 1 MB/s which is more than double!
If I connect through the Videotron VPN and DOWNLOAD something I get 600-to 900 kB/s or so, all using the same thing, ssh and rsync.
I get about the same thing with the Bell VPN.
So my question is why would one VPN which is suppose to be on a faster connection be slower then the other? I have NO firewall setup, no Rules except the HTTPS persistant. It can’t be Videotron that is throttling my bandwith because when I use the Bell VPN I achieve faster speed.
Any help would be greatly appriciated!
