    I’m a little sad at the closure of the EU location. From my minivps there I’d get about 50, sometimes up to 90mbit/s (Virgin Media ISP). Checking their UK test file, I’m hitting 4mbit/s tops.

    Hi

    If I go for one of these and find out it isn’t quite up to my needs how would I go about upgrading?

    Also any chance of a comparable deal on the VPS 4 (1GB) as I might be tempted to leave Linode.com if so?

    Any comments or benchmarks regarding i/o?

    • If you do a search on here you’ll find our previous 1GB special – that might be what you’re after.

      As for upgrading, that’s easy enough. It’s all handled in your client area however I should point out you can only upgrade to one of our other standard plans. You can’t upgrade between specials. Let us know if you’ve got any other queries!
