  5. IMHO the plans should come with more IPv6 by default. Yes, I know you can get more, but why not just include them and avoid the “more IPv6 tickets”. I can’t wait till the day when “more IPv6” is a button in SolusVM.

    Other than that, these plans seem to be pretty decent, although I prefer to pay less than $5 for 512MB. The website is nice and clean, though the WHMCS is bland. Also, too many “smalls” in their self-description, while having no about page on their regular page. This host definitely has an air of “just got started”, but hopefully that will dissipate soon.

    • Speed test file is very slow, averages under 3MB/s from RamNode Seattle, less from RamNode Atlanta and BudgetVM Chicago. I actually bought one of this offer to test, though, and it gets regular 100Mbit speeds download. When I try to download the test file to it, then download it from another VPS, I get the same lousy speeds. Throttled outbound traffic? Full review to come on LET.

  6. Signup process doesnt email any confirmations and no details of how to log into solusVM.

    Speeds seem rather slow as well and support tickets appear also to be slow in being answered.
