    DMCA yes, abuse Ticket no, if a valid abuse ticket comes in from upstream then it has too be dealt with. We are not offshore.

    @shafire

    First one links to : LET CB Germany

    Second one links to : Specials - LET SSD Special

    Even just checked myself again, and different price with SSD defaulting to Monthly where CB is yearly+ only.

    Yeah me too, their Frankfurt location is amazing, especially for that price.

    @AshleyUk What is the difference between the HDD offer with regular bandwidth and the 2TB tier 1 bandwidth? Is it both 23media? Do they offer different mixes?

  • @chrisp said:

    Both the same bandwidth mix, just the CB offer covers what is offered across all 3 locations, where SSD is just out of Telehouse (23M).

    Ok thanks. The SSD node sounds tempting, but the HDD node is so great and snappy already, that changing is not too tempting :)

    For dd freaks out there this is the "CB" KVM HDD:

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=16k conv=fdatasync 16384+0 records in 16384+0 records out 1073741824 bytes (1.1 GB) copied, 1.1532 s, 931 MB/s

    well that's cached you would say..nope

    dd if=/dev/zero of=test bs=64k count=256k conv=fdatasync 262144+0 records in 262144+0 records out 17179869184 bytes (17 GB) copied, 16.3402 s, 1.1 GB/s

    I admire your attitude. I don't like when providers only do deals for new customers to get sales and leave the old customers behind.

    The network isn't good outside of DE/FR/UK. So, I am not quite sure whether I'll keep this one.

  • K4Y5K4Y5 Member

    Going by the rave reviews and seeing the customer first approach of @AshleyUk I was actually looking for reasons to justify keeping the server even after running the first couple of benchmarks, which turned out to be a bit disappointing in terms of network mix and peering to the US and Asia.

    After spending the next few hours testing connectivity directly to 5 other locations outside of EU where I have other servers, I had no option but to get the service cancelled, as I'd only be increasing my monthly bills over yet another VM that I couldn't fully utilize.

    The VM with dedicated resources offers excellent performance at the price point, and will undoubtedly be appreciated by individuals with target audience within the EU.

    Sadly, for the rest of us, the connectivity to US and even Asia needs to be improved a LOT.
    I personally wouldn't mind coming back once the peering situation improves.

  • @K4Y5 said:

    Thanks for your honest mini review, as I said in the support ticket while processing your refund.

    23m have a solid EU network including all the main network players to give a good network blend. However they are currently working to improve their USA and outside EU connectivity and mix.

    I will defintly get in contact with you in the near future around this, and im glad apart from the network distance you was happy with all other areas of the service.

    Thanks

    Nice offer!

    No smaller plan for those of us who don't need that much resources?

    SSD plan can be split into two smaller VM's if required, however the above are the two smallest VM's we offer.

  • Ok, thanks!

    Just waiting for a routing issue to be fixed with a new IP Block and CA will be added back into stock.
