Can a fast internet connection compensate for a slow server?

Network Engineering Asked by Tripasect on January 12, 2021

If the sever is bottlenecking at 100kB/s with a bandwidth of A, would it bottleneck at any higher speed with a bandwidth of 2A? In another words, can a fast internet connection compensate for a slow server to any extent?

No. A server cannot become faster when you upgrade its link alone (if the link isn't the bottleneck). The possible throughput is the lower value of local throughput and network throughput.

No .. High bandwidth internet connectivity cannot compensate low throughput Server . Tràffic will flow fasters from ISP link and reaches to server but beacuse of traffic congestion at server end traffic packets will be queued at server end resulting packet drops and latency and low performance .. The only solution is to increase throughput at server end resulting avoiding congestion of packets at server end.
