Thanks for that

I was testing the speed of the virtual service I have hosted at Tilaa, and this is what I did find out.

When using IPv6, you go faster :

Downloading some image using IPv4

[root@pan ~]# wget -O /dev/null http://194.8.197.22/ubuntu-isos/12.10/ubuntu-12.10-desktop-amd64.iso

Thanks to the default Linux behaviour (when IPv6 is available, use it first), I’m benefiting of traffic (nearly) free highways.
