Well, a static IP in theory shouldn't change - you should have the same IP address any time you connect to the Internet. A dynamic IP address may change (although it may stick with you for months at a time, potentially).2006TTD wrote:I guess I lacked knowledge regarding that, could you tell me more about the difference between static and dynamic IP?
Well, Hong Kong has a pretty good Internet infrastructure locally as I understand it, so you should get excellent speeds there, but all your traffic to Europe, for instance, goes via America, which is a long way to go! The problem is there simply aren't great connections by land - you'd have to have connections run via China, Kazakhstan, Russia, the Ukraine, etc. Plus, you've got pretty much the entirety of Asia, Australasia, etc, trying to squeeze their bits and bytes down a handful of submarine links to the US, so it will understandably be a little slower. Have a look at Greg's Cable Map, it's quite interesting.2006TTD wrote:I download content from Hong Kong and sometimes other parts of the world, however, I don't really know where the servers are located. Sometimes I can get up to a few hundred KB (Bytes), say 200-500 KB, when I download from foreign sites. But my experience does not match with the speedtest results, I wonder why? Server is too busy?
