I am not affiliated with quickpacket in any way, I just thought LET should see it. They're adding PCCW in the coming weeks as well
Thanked by 4FrankZ aglodek linuxthefish qps
They've my order with 2x128GB SSD.
@Sady what uses will you be giving to it ( if it can be disclosed)?
Curious to know how it performs. Can you please post when you have it ( after some time)
Thanks for spotting this, got one with a 128gb SSD also! Can't help but love quickpacket.
Their Atlanta location is very stable, and no downtime since I've been with them.

Yes, we are in the process of ordering the cross connects now, so it should be pretty soon.
Thanks for your interest! If I can answer any questions, please let me know.
Is rDNS available?
@emilv they have rdns
Have no use at the moment but I don't lose this kind of offer
Will post benchmark & stability for sure
They rejected my order
Why? CC @qps
I believe because card has different name than me but the same billing address (card is of my sister). Told him that I can verify my own as well as my sister's identity if he needs, wouldn't mind giving him a snap of card hiding few digits of card.
Ordered but not yet received aftered 12 hours. Does anyone receive the server yet?
Alright, they don't want to have me as a customer.
They didn't share any exact reason just some tens of possible reasons so I'll leave it now. A great experience.
Sometimes during our order review process we determine that we do not want to proceed with an order. We don't always share the exact reason(s) with the customer.
As the original offer on WHT stated, orders are typically provisioned within one business day after order verification. Many times orders are provisioned within a few hours. However, due to the order volume, it may take a bit longer. Thanks for your patience.
I see almost 70 bucks for this box. Is it that in a further step you have to put some code or something?
@Sady : bummer man
Yes, there is a promo code integrated into the link above. On the second page of the order form, it will show the price reduction.
My server is delivered. The network is quite OK:
but the there seems to be a problem with the SSD disk (I customized my server with 128GB SSD).
Opened a ticket and wait for reply!
Did you disable write back cache?
Yes, this is likely an issue with the drive cache being disabled. Our support team will tell you how to enable it.
After enabling writing cache, the speed is not improved much. They are replacing the server for me. It's very quick, I am totally satisfied with the support!
how to enable drive cache?
also smartmontools can't display smart value
Please open a ticket.
they wont use my own supplied windows key instead just wanting to earn extra with the inflated prices of their installation.
What we charge is a pass through of what Microsoft charges us through the Microsoft SPLA. We are not making money on Windows licenses.
