Bandwidth speed test hosting
I am with speedguide.net, a well known broadband-related website that hosts a number of tools, including a publicly available bandwidth speed test.
I'm looking for a few hosting companies to donate some bandwidth for speed test mirrors. It involves simply uploading a few test files on a php-enabled server (one php file with a simple redirect and some test files with random data, total ~20MB).
We're trying to make our current speed test more accurate and distribute some of the bandwidth load, which involves using many mirrors from different locations. Mirrors should have burstable bandwidth, preferably on a major backbone. Expected bandwidth usage is between 100MB and 2GB daily, and can be limited as needed. We just started this version of our speed test, and currently have 6 mirrors.
In return for donating some bandwidth to this public service, you get a link back from our website, and your domain will be refered to all users that use your mirror. But mainly, we're trying to add more locations to this public service so users can test their connection speed reliably. For your reference, we serve about 6 Million pages to about 1 Million unique IPs monthly, so it may be a good advertising opportunity as well.
If you have some available bandwidth and may be interested, please let me know via email/PM/reply here.
Thank you for reading,
