China access speeds


Recommended Posts

I am thinking of moving our sites over to hawkhost but am concerned with access speeds from within China as most of our visitors reside in China.


Is there any way to test the speeds that our visitors would be seeing (I am currently in Shanghai)? Also, would your Singapore hosting location provide faster access?


We really would prefer not to host within China and are hopeful that hawkhost is a good alternative. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We do have speed tests available at which you can use, or if you traceroute any of the IPs listed it should give you a solid idea of what speeds will be like.


Most of our customers from China use either Singapore, Seattle, or San Jose. Despite Singapore being the closest geographically the routing/peering in that region is not always consistent so you may end up seeing better routes to a US based location.
