I just got a free vps by ovh: http://www.kimsufi.co.uk/vks/geovks.xml
When ordering I selected Hong Kong, I read that
"Please not that depending on the test needs, it's possible that you get your vKS in a POP other than the one you requested."
But guess where I got the vps located? Canada.
it isn't even on their pop list:
Newark Available Chicago Available Milano Available Paris Available Frankfurt Available Madrid Available Dallas Available Hong Kong Available San Jose Available
It's written that vpses are 10Mbps bandwidth limited...
I just done a bench
