Re: WOW Bandwidth Speed Test Sites Question

Not sure if this is how they set it up or not but it may be an explanation. The reason to use wows vs another is that wows is completely on their internal network. So if you get good on wows and bad elsewhere it stands to reason the issue is outside wows network. That being said the only real reason to have them separated by region could be because it uses the outside network to reach other regions. So in Cleveland to Cleveland speed test is isolated to only wows network but to another region it leaves wows network and comes back to it.

Just a possible explanation that makes a little sense, not sure though.
However as long as the server you are testing with has the bandwidth you should get the same speed all across the country with only ping increasing.
