Don’t forget that so far you only talk about point A and B (say, your provider in HK and the US located server).
You also must consider these factors:
- How is your provider connected to the international backbones?
- How is the traffic at time of your download there?
- Internet is not a free-for-all realm but something like the global weather. Some routes may be bad at times where others are good. At times, you can ping a certain destination at good speed whereas at other times the same destination crawls.
In summary, there are 3 reasons for speed issues:
Can serve all its customers the promised speed?
Can handle the incoming requests?
- A to B line
Are there speedy connections?
There is nothing you can do to influence this.
