  1. Love to try, though the bandwidth cap seems to be too small.

    • How much bandwidth do you use each month? Most people I ask cannot answer such a simple question

        My usage? Easy:

            month        rx      |     tx      |    total    |   avg. rate
         ------------------------+-------------+-------------+--------------
           Jun '11      1.11 GiB |    7.27 GiB |    8.38 GiB |   27.13 kbit/s
           Jul '11      2.39 GiB |    2.59 GiB |    4.99 GiB |   15.62 kbit/s
        

        And yes, 100 GB per month is way too small.

        The minimum amount for me to even start considering a plan is 250 GB, and to feel enough headroom that will need to be 500GB. If a provider does not want to give a larger allocation, I’d suggest to at least make it “100 GB at 1Gbps, then 10 Mbps unmetered till the end of month”. I do not want to have my VPS turned off just because I posted a large file and a bunch of people have downloaded it. Nor do I want to pay $1/GB or some other ridiculous amount for “overuse”.

          Your average consumption is about 6,7 GB per month according to the stats you privided. How can 110GB/Month be not enough for you? Additionally you have to consider that bandwidth does indeed cost money. So when a provider does a calculation he calculates an estimated usage. This then makes a large portion of the monthly price. If you want unmetered bandwidth with a 1ooMBit/s connection you are quite above a LEB.

          1) It may be enough *today*, however I don’t know what can happen tomorrow.
          2) I do not want to be wary of uploading a 100 MB file in fear of stepping over the measly 100GB limit, I do not want to be having to limit myself also *here*, there are enough places in life already where we have to count consumption/minutes/megabytes/watts/liters/gallons.
          3) 500GB is perceived as being enough not just for today but also for tomorrow, with all potential force-majeures summed in (like posting to Slashdot or me making my own 700MB GNU/Linux ISO).
          4) there’s a *lot* of LEB providers giving 500GB or 1000GB (and even 1000GB@1GBit+10Mbps unmetered afterwards, like one VPS I have currently) – so why settle for less?

  2. On sites, I get to spend around 10GB plus, though I’m planing to host some files for a game that we’re currently making so I assume that it will use *much* bandwidth

    The $6.27 plan turns out to only be 5.7 cents per gigabyte and includes the server. For what it is worth, we charge $0.20 overage charge per gigabyte over your allotment or $0.10 per gigabyte if you add bandwidth ahead of time.

    I’ve had a VPS from Magoro since March and have been very happy with their service and stability. Very good uptime. This is a great VPS.
