As I recall, there is not a good public key server ... As I wrote in:

   As of now, good keyservers are:

      keyserver wwwkeys.eu.pgp.net
      keyserver wwwkeys.pgp.net

   Here one must be careful not to create more than 2 sub-keys. If you do,
   keyservers on pgp.net will corrupt your key. Also, only one keyserver can
   be specified in $HOME/.gnupg/options.

   Unfortunately, the following does not work any more:

      keyserver search.keyserver.net
      keyserver pgp.ai.mit.edu
  The following will upload my key "A8061F32" to multiple key servers:

      $ for xx in us es cz de dk uk ch net.uk earth.net.uk; \
      $ do gpg --keyserver wwwkeys.$xx.pgp.net  --send-keys A8061F32; done

---- (My additional comment here) ---
keyserver.net is proprietary service
mit one seems low bandwidth or firewall protected...

I hope this may help new web page.
