Desktop Speed Test – Week 9 Summary Table

It’s neck and neck for 1st place, with A2 Hosting & GoDaddy at it again. With a margin of just 0.07s, GoDaddy has taken the title of fastest in Dallas!!

With A2 Hosting just missing out on 1st, it ends a remarkable streak of 5 victories in a row.

The other major change was SiteGround dropping from 4th last week all the way to 7th place this week, which is the lowest they have ever finished in the Desktop Speed Test.

We will continue changing our test location each week, so that we can truly find out which host is performing best from a worldwide perspective. Next week we are off to London, will GoDaddy be able to hang onto top spot?
