Hey guys, I've struggled with this for a while now. In particular the Mint download Mirrors, how do I know which one is fastest for my region? I have googled some of them to find out where they are located, but some are not googleable, and still cannot find which one is fastest.
Sometimes I use ones that have been suggested to me, and sometimes they don't even work. So tried a few in addition over the years but still don't know the proper way to check for speed.
Last night used "West Virginia University" as it may be one of the closest to my location. I was also trying out a new Download Manager...uGet...and didn't really understand all the settings at the time. My internet was also kinda slow last night 18Mbps, normally get 30-72Mbps. This led to about a 25 minute download, which is over three times what it usually took for me to download Linux Mint Mate and KDE, but one at a time of course.
Is the only way to check the download speed by starting a download and checking it?
