Actually the Terra servers do not use RAID. All of the storage on the four drives is available for movies.

Do you mean MB/s (megabytes per second) or Mb/s (megabits per second)?

As others have noted, the current download limit is 100Mbit/sec. I regularly see that speed at home. If you're only seeing 15Mbit/sec consistently, then something is not right.

I have been getting downloads at 95+ Mb/s consistently so I suspect maybe there is an issue with your ISP.

Sorry, of course I meant Mb/s, not MB/s.

My ISP (Comcast) regularly tests out at much faster - just tested (while I'm downloading from Kaleidescape right now at 15Mb/s) and my download is 161Mb/s and my upload is 11Mb/s. So, there's lots of bandwidth that's not being used.

Now, this could be shaped by Comcast right now... but, weird, no?

How close to theoretical is that? I'm always complaining to VZ I'm not getting what I pay for

My 105 Comast service regularly tests out at 125-130Mb/s and my Alto downloads typically show 95Mb/s when my network is idle.

15Mb/s sounds like your connection is being throttled by your ISP. Another explanation could be a bad link in the chain between your K-scape and router.... bad switch, bad port, bad cable, broadcast storm by another device on the same switch... it all depends on how complicated your network is.

Assuming you have multiple hops between your K-scape and router, can you temporarily connect it directly to the router with a single ethernet cable and download again to test the speed?

Is your system a Premiere system or an Alto or Cinema One? If one of the latter, are you using Wi-Fi, or a wired network connection?

Are you sure that you have not set a speed limit on your downloads (on the Downloads page on the Movie Store)?

It's a Premiere system, wired (100% gigabit), and there's no speed limit set (it's a 100Mbps, the maximum).

It ran at 50-60Mbps from December 21st (when I started this batch of downloads) until December 25th, at which point it throttled down to 20Mbps. On the 26th, it dropped to 10-16Mbps and hasn't gone over that since then (although as of one second ago it's going at 20 again).

And, of course, now it's running at around 15 again. It seems clear someone is shaping the traffic. I just don't know who's doing it.

It's not us. I'm currently downloading a movie to my Alto at home:
