    What’s the delay to create the VPS?
    I bought one on monday in OVH and they’re having “issues with capacity”…

    This is one of the cheaper offers I’ve seen for Asian bandwidth, however isn’t bandwidth in Asian countries suppost to be dirt cheap? I know you can get 1 Gbps for around 10 bucks a month in South Korea, while in the US it would cost about $100.

      That’s ‘Romania’ not ‘South Korea’ and ‘European’, not ‘Asian’, Romanians have 1Gbps for 15 euros a month. Residential Gigabit Internet in Korea would cost at least $35 a month including VAT unless you were referring this discounts (basically ‘you pay shittons of money for Mobile then I’ll let you pay little for the Internet!’). not to mention there’s daily bandwidth limit which is around 100GB/day then 100Mbps.

        WTF does Romania have to do with this? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_in_South_Korea
        “South Korea is the world leader in Internet connectivity, having the world’s fastest average internet connection speed. […] 100 Mbit/s services are the average standard in urban South Korean homes and the country is rapidly rolling out 1Gbit/s connections or 1,000 Mbit/s, at $20 per month”.
        However all of that is residential b/w, which tells you nothing about the datacenter market.

          Yes, shouldn’t that mean in the datacenter market, it should be cheaper?

          June 10, 2015 @ 7:54 pm | Reply
          • No, 1Gbps costs over 7k usd / month in datacenter.

    Though the Japan VPS peers chinatelecom CN2,which has a perfect ping performance,network speed from mainland China is always only about 200K/s,no matter ChinaTelecom or ChinaMobile.
    虽然日本机器有和中国电信的CN2对接,虽然ping值很低,然而中国大陆的连接速度大约只有200K,无论是电信还是移动。

    Quick ticket response,perfect warm service,fast local(japan)network……These are really good anyway.
    不过工单处理非常迅速,服务也非常到位,我相信Japan节点仅仅是没有特别对中国优化而已,对日本本土等地应该有很不错的表现。

    More importantly,I think the user’s agreement(incluing refund policy) is really fair!
    关键是我认为这家的用户协议/使用退款政策非常公平,很有诚意。

    Best wishes
    祝生意兴隆

    I read a review on WHT said that you will delete your client’s data if they don’t access their account in 2 months. Is it true?
