    My download speed has reduced to 100 kbit/s now.
    Downloads from other sites run with max speed. I am extremly fed up with that!

    Hi there!
    What about the download speed???
    In January I was complaining about the low download speed here at AW.
    It's been 3 months now and there was no improvement in that thing.
    In the meantime I checked other sites and they gave me a download speed up to 2,5 MB/s.
    Here at AW it is at 150 kb/s (and that is the average speed since January 2013).
    As before I changed the server settings at the preferences site several times but with no effect.
    Quite a poor performance!
    I dont't want to but I will cancel my rebiiling and quit when there is no improvement in the near future.

    Regards

    You change to US or NL servers and saw no difference at all between the two ?
    (you do need to refesh shootpage for a change to take effect, i.e. do not use 'Back' button)

    I dimly remember that on the old AW site there was a page on which I could actually measure the download rate from the available servers. But now I only find an option in my account preferences to select between the Merkin and the European server(s). Where has the measuring page gone?

    Absolutely no difference between US and dutch server (I'm located in Germany). Refreshed site several times and tried several browser. Todays topspeed was 250 kb/s. Ridiculous!

    That's odd. You don't need to refresh that much just check the url for the files. For US the cdnXX number is usually lower (<25 I think). If a download from a US server is as fast/slow as a download from a NL server it's unlikely the servers are the problem.

    Greetings, recently the download speed has dropped from 150 - 300kbs to less than 10kbs. A ping test gives 13Mbs. Using IE10 but slow downloads were experienced on IE9 also.

    You're coming from Thailand, downloading from a cdn30-34 server (NL) ? Seems you're hitting massive delays in London (#13 on your list).
    Go to My Account tab Preferences and check if 'Media Location' is 'auto select' .

    If it is not set to 'auto select' set to that
    If it IS set to 'auto select' set it to 'US CDN'

    Having done one of the above go to a shootpage and download something (do not use 'back' as you want to reload the shootpage)

    I had noticed a couple nights a go whilst I was downloading Estefania's picture set, the download speed suddenly dropped to about 1Kb/s halfway through the process of dwnloading that picset. I even tried logging out and back in so as to refresh the sesion but still slower than molasses in January. So I left it alone until the next day when I was able to resume the download though still the later half of the picset took the better part of a half hour to complete.

    I'm having the same problems as the users above. I used to get ~700kb/s consistently here (my maximum connection speed), but recently my downloads speeds have dropped to below 100kb/s on average and most of the time as low as 35 kb/s. Changing the server location does nothing. I enjoy the content here but these speeds are unacceptable. All other sites seem to provide me with fast download speeds so it appears to only be an issue with AW.

    Not exactly a low download speed issue...
    Just wondering if I am connecting to the correct servier to get max speed. I used to check the speed test semi regularly and go by that.
    I f I choose auto select... will the system auto select the quickest option for me?? Or should I experiment between the two servers??

    Any suggestions/ guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Pinky

    System should select the fastest server. Be aware that you can't always 'see' that in the url used, (i.e. your cdn01 may be different for another member in say Iceland ;-)

    It's been 1 year now and I'm still facing that problem with the low download speed at AW. 50-100 kbit/s is not acceptable these days (no matter what day or time of day; Germany). Other sites offer 1,5 -2 MBit/s (I tested several other sites). After being a member at AW for 4 years now I will cancel my subscription before the next rebill because I am so fed up with that technical shortcoming.
    It was a nice time with lots of pretty girls. Thanks for that and thanks to the girls at Abby Winters.

    Kind regards
