did hubic (from ovh) improve?
I used hubic, ~6/7 years ago and the service was horrible, 1-2 MB/s download speeds, webUI very buggy, it wasn't even worth the 5€. I thought it would end up failing miserably and they would simply close the service.
I noticed today they are still alive. How the hell are those people still online with that quality of service? does anyone know if things improved or are they just still online by chance?
Its walking dead.
They kept saying my card was declined but the bank wasn't seeing an attempt, so likely fraud filter. Years later they still keep trying to charge me and letting me know that they can't. It's a game to me to see how long it can last.
Was wondering…. Hubic is still alive?
It's alive but they don't take new customers I think and they did stop any development for it.
works well, and fast
It still has a 10Mb/s cap.
It's functional, you can't upgrade or downgrade, only cancel. It's been in this state for a few years.
They're closed to new customers.
Oh, I noticed now "We have therefore decided to stop developing hubiC and suspend the creation of new accounts"
My guess is : it was meant as an experimental service to test their "public cloud" solution and it already did the job, they charged so cheap so that you can't complain much if things go wrong. They are trying to get out of market slowly, so maybe when the number of active client drops they will announce the end of the service.
I guess for the people who still has active accounts with them, this is a secondary backup solution. So for the cheap price, I am sure some people will be happy to spend few weeks to get their data back at slow speed if some disaster happen to their main storage + main backup. So I guess it makes sense to see they still have some customers.
You do not have to use the web UI since there are command-line tools to mount or sync it. And considering you got 10 TB of space for 5 EUR/mo -- or 50 EUR/year, speeds of 1-2 MB/s could be fine for some uses.
I thought the project is gone by now. Much better to get Microsoft 365 Business and use Onedrive.
