Upload Twice As Fast As

Ookla is out with its latest report for mobile and fixed broadband Internet speeds in the US. Continuing a string of wins, T-Mobile came in first for best mobile performance with download speeds almost 2x faster than AT&T and Verizon along with having the strongest consistency and 5G availability. For fixed broadband, COX beat out XFINITY for the fastest download speeds.

Upload Twice As Fast As

Everyone wants faster internet speeds. Even people who already have high-speed connections want faster internet, including enterprise workers and IT pros. More speed is what they need, or at least what they would strongly prefer, because the faster data is transmitted between two devices, the faster decisions can be made and actions taken. In the Darwinian digital economy, slow Internet speeds are for laggards and also-rans!

So how fast is fast? Some might say the average US internet speed of 99.3 Mbps as measured earlier this year by is more than adequate, while an enterprise with a sizable workforce and growing number of connected devices and edge networks would need far more bandwidth.

For those who believe their internet can never be fast enough, though, there is some good news. Engineers in Japan have smashed the previous world record for fastest internet speed, reaching data transmission rates of 319 terabits per second, nearly double the 178 Tbps mark set just a year prior.

Also announced today, Eye-Fi users will be able to upload photos directly to one of two new online photo destinations: Apple's MobileMe and AdoramaPix. MobileMe members can wirelessly send photos from their camera directly to their MobileMe Gallery which can then be viewed by friends and family on the Web, iPhone, iPod touch and Apple TV. Available now, users will also be able to upload photos directly from their camera to their AdoramaPix account, where they can edit, share and make prints. As a significant nationwide expansion, Eye-Fi cards will be available for purchase at more than 900 Best Buy stores throughout the United States, as well as at Circuit City, Ritz Camera Centers and major online retail sites. By October 5, users will be able to enjoy Eye-Fi's faster upload speeds and service upgrades, and purchase cards from Best Buy stores nationwide.

When it comes to the internet, the news is mostly good for 2018. Download and upload speeds are increasing across the globe on both mobile and fixed broadband. 5G is on the horizon and gigabit service is expanding.

With a mean download speed of 27.84 Mbps and a mean upload of 10.61 Mbps, worldwide speeds on iOS devices were faster than those on Android (21.35 Mbps download, 8.73 Mbps upload) in 2018. This is likely due to market factors as Android devices are more popular in emerging markets where internet speeds tend to be slower.

However, download speed on Android devices increased 19.0% and upload speed increased 15.1%, more than those on iOS (18.0% increase for download and 11.1% increase for upload), which is good news for those emerging markets.

The countries with the fastest mean download speeds over mobile in the past 12 months were: Norway (63.19 Mbps), Iceland (58.68 Mbps), Qatar (55.17 Mbps), Singapore (54.71 Mbps) and the Netherlands (53.42 Mbps).

Libya showed the most improvement in mean upload speed over fixed broadband during the past twelve months at 176.4%. Guyana was second with 116.1%, Malaysia third (95.2%), Belize fourth (88.9%) and Iraq fifth (76.8%).

Why only download issues? Because the only Comcast-tagged packets are the inboundones: Internet --> you, including those big data packets. When uploading,yes, you get sent ACK packets and such - but they are tiny connection-controlpackets. I imagine WWM weirds out on them too, but you (usually) wouldn'tnotice when doing multi-Mbps speed tests.

The warming during the summer months in Europe has been much faster than the global average, shows a new study by researchers at Stockholm University published in the Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres. As a consequence of human emissions of greenhouse gases, the climate across the continent has also become drier, particularly in southern Europe, leading to worse heat waves and an increased risk of fires.

According to the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warming over land areas occurs significantly faster than over oceans, with 1.6 degrees and 0.9 degrees on average, respectively. It means that the global greenhouse gas emissions budget to stay under a 1.5-degree warming on land has already been used up. Now, the new study shows that the emissions budget to avoid a 2-degree warming over large parts of Europe during the summer half-year (April-September) has also been used up. In fact, measurements reveal that the warming during the summer months in large parts of Europe during the last four decades has already surpassed two degrees.

AT&T Wireless further specifies that the 3G standard is capable of "providing typical download speeds of 600 Kbps to 1.4 Mbps and typical upload speeds of 500 to 800 Kbps on compatible devices" and that the service is provided in "more than 280" major US metropolitan areas. 3G coverage is much higher in many countries in Europe and Asia.

To generalize, EDGE is not much faster than a 56k dial up connection, whereas 3G offers broadband speeds, but 3G is not as readily available as EDGE. 3G also uses significantly more power than EDGE and this can have an adverse impact on battery life.

Developed by the Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) in 2013, the HEIF criteria was finalized in 2015. It stores twice as much information as JPEG images of the same size, thereby improving the quality of files significantly. Because of this, you can feasibly store twice the number of files than before. Additionally, the resulting images should upload faster to online services because of the smaller size. On the iPhone, for example, this means pictures uploaded to the iCloud Photo Library should move twice as fast.

In addition, while the US economy continues to grow steadily, the US software industry grew nearly two times faster, contributing $1.6 trillion to the total US value-added GDP in 2018. The industry has expanded by 19 percent since 2016.

According to the Guardian, there are a number of reasons Europe is heating faster than the rest of the world. For one, Europe has a high percentage of land mass, which as a result warms faster than the sea. Alongside Europe, the Arctic and high northern latitudes are the fastest-warming regions in the world (parts of Europe also being in the northern latitudes.)

The new modeling addresses holes in our data from the past, like how clouds form and respond to a changing climate, which clouds reflect and which absorb sunlight, where they change, and what difference this makes with the global temperature. What all of this new detail means is that heating will plausibly happen nearly twice as fast as what has been projected for decades.

Today, however, carbon dioxide in our atmosphere is rising 100 times faster than at any time in prehistory, except maybe that time when the giant asteroid hit the Yucatan Peninsula and the dinosaurs went extinct. To expect the latest, more extreme modeling will revert back to less extreme results is not too likely.

What started out as a comprehensive speed test, turned into a series of revisiting and rewriting of some of the file transfer frameworks we use in ForkLift. Thanks to these changes, ForkLift has become an even faster file transfer tool.

Before I tell you how one file transfer client can be faster than the other, let me explain how transferring files works. You might better understand the process by imagining it like eating at a restaurant. Eating at a restaurant has its rules, just as the different file transfer protocols have their own rules. In a restaurant, you take a seat, wait for the waiter, order a drink, go over the menu and then you order your meal. When you have finished your meal, you have to wait for the waiter to clear the table and then you can ask for the bill, and you can only leave after you have paid. Transferring the file equals the consumption of the food, everything before and after the meal is what we call the overhead. In the case of the file transfer, the overhead is the indirect computation and communication time that is required to perform the file transfer. It takes time to build up, to handle and to end the communication with the remote server just as ordering and paying at the restaurant take time.

Because we at Binarynights have always paid a lot of attention to the upload speed, Forklift has handled file transfers multi-threaded ever since it first came out in 2007. The way how the multi-threaded file transfer was implemented in ForkLift made it already very fast and one of the fastest clients, but there was still some room for improvement. During our tests, we found ways to make the file transfers with ForkLift via SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) and Amazon S3 (Amazon Simple Storage Service) even faster, and we also changed the way how ForkLift was deleting files.

When you connect to your Amazon S3 storage, the throughput of that connection is limited by Amazon. When you are uploading big files, this limitation can make your upload time significantly longer. But with the multipart upload of big files, Amazon also offers a way around this limitation. During the multipart upload, the large files are split into multiple parts, and these parts get uploaded using more connections in parallel. The throughput of each connection is limited, but when we open more connections, we can increase the combined throughput significantly. After all the parts have been uploaded using the multiple connections, the large file gets reconstructed from the parts. This way, the file can be uploaded much faster. With these implementations ForkLift uses the given means and resources more efficiently making the upload of big files faster.
