File Transfer Calculator

Take our File Transfer Calculator for a drive. Though we don’t offer options for every city and bandwidth, you can easily get a sense of the performance improvement you gain with Signiant Acceleration. Play around with different file sizes, bandwidth and locations. Note that the larger the file size, the higher the bandwidth and the further the location, the more you will benefit by using Signiant. Of course, real world results may vary depending on your specific network configuration.

What If?

If I increase my bandwidth...

for FTP, HTTP or TCP/IP will my file move faster?


Because of the latency associated with these legacy protocols, increases in bandwidth will not improve performance. FTP, HTTP or TCP/IP are just not able to utilize additional bandwidth.

If I increase my bandwidth with Signiant...

will my file move faster?


Signiant’s protocol is specifically designed to use all the available bandwidth and reduce latency typically associated with file transfers. If you increase bandwidth with Signiant, your transfers will move faster.

Move Large Files Fast with Signiant

File transfer with Signiant is the easiest and most secure way to transfer large files fast from anywhere around the world. Test our file transfer calculator above, and you will see how fast file transfer can be regardless of your file size or how far it has to go.

Your Bandwidth Utilization

As file size and complexity continues to grow, latency issues with FTP will become increasingly problematic. FTP’s reliance on TCP cuts its bandwidth use to a fraction of what is available, regardless of your Internet service provider. Signiant provides a smart FTP replacement option; it is designed to practically eliminate latency, and to both optimize and manage your bandwidth use for fast file transfers.

Understand File Transfer Acceleration

Signiant uses UDP acceleration to dramatically improve Internet transmission speeds. Signiant’s file transfer solutions are accessible through the cloud or as an on-premises software solution for fast file sharing anywhere around the world at any time.
