Linode which is my favorite VPS host, recently announced their service availability on Tokyo,Japan data center. If your visitors reside in Asia you might be interested in jumping to Tokyo data center. But what about speeds? London data center is already performing very well for Asian linode customers.
So to find out what kind of speeds that I can get with Tokyo Data Center, I have snatched a 512MB linode on Tokyo DC and decided to perform some network speedtests. All tests were done with 100MB test files.
Unfortunately the results are extremely poor as you can see below. I wont put the blames quickly on linodes part because since its new there can be few minor problems and most likely be able to resolve this by simple support ticket. But I found something interesting,
