  1. Thank you LEB for the post!
    A little correction, Fragnet has been operating since April 2010 – guess it’s a typo.
    I am here to answer any questions you have have about our services!

    • You should expand your range of VPSes to Sweden, with a LEB coupon.

      There aren’t many great hosts in Sweden except @WilliamEDIS.

      • We are planning on buying more rackspace in Stockholm and make that our first EU base for VPS operations, why we will most likely be able to offer that within just a few weeks.
        We are also currently setting up our new KVM nodes, that we will be able to offer within shortly

    • Hi Daniel,

      Sorry about that – replied to your ticket!
      Thought I’d seen your CSS servers prior to 2012.

    • A Benchmark report can be found here: http://serverbear.com/benchmark/2012/12/08/eUabhfzVsOSvCL0E
      The benchmark was ran on a Copper VPS plan on a node considered as 50% full.

    You say this is valid for only one month, however if we were to order now would the price still remain $5.95 when were to renew for a next month?

    • Jeff,
      The discounted price will last for as long as you keep the service ($5.95). I am not sure why LEB staff expressed it like that.

      • Robin:

        So a RAM upgrade in the future would completely remove the discount on the original plan?

    • Possibly add a tracert, as there is no telling how your ISP is routing your traffic.
      We ColoCrossing for all our US hosting, why there are no volume, budget upstream providers.

  5. Just picked one up! Very competitive and I’m glad to see a server in Chicago (not to far from Detroit). Will be using this as the development server for my network. Thanks can’t wait to do more business soon!

    Just picked one up, and got very impressive results.

    Unix Bench: 2107.2
    I/O Bench: 216 MB/s
    IOPS: 14431
    Bandwidth: 92.4 MB/s

    Time will only tell if support, and uptime is good. However I’m happy :)

      Hosting a small voice server, and for some reason the server timesout once in a while. Not sure of the problem. But I just lose connection to the server for 1-5 minutes, and it’s back up again.

      • Jeff, our monitoring looks all green. When/if that occurs, run a ping/tracert to verify connectivity – preferably from a distant location as well (to rule out your ISP). For further assistance, I suggest submitting a ticket so that we can assist further!

    How long will this coupon code be active? I will try to get a few of my friends to host with this too.

    Vouch for Fragnet. I am hosting a small private server and it runs flawlessly. Latency, Upload, and Download Speeds are all very reasonable.

    • Thank You Heath!
      The coupon code will be active at least for the remainder of 2012.
      We hope to get some new existing offers up in January, with KVM SSD-cached offers along with OpenVZ

    Fragnet is turning out to be one of my favorite VPS. Great performance, and uptime. Just wished you guys had a server in the west coast.

    • Jeffrey,

      Patience – we have just ordered additional machines going in that direction. :)
