    Same DC on all UK offers.. Did someone provide Peer1 UK DC VPS?

    • We do UK VPS (we were the last UK LEB post). We’re running in a carrier neutral DC and offer generous bandwidth allowances.

      • We were at RapidSwitch but we left them due to various issues, no least their bandwidth price

    Probable reason why they all at the same DC, is that the lowest Dedi provider in the UK is based there – Rapidswitch. Its also why the bandwidth/traffic is always on the low side.

      Rapidswitch is the bargain basement in the UK, not that it’s what many would call cheap but for the UK it is. Don’t get me wrong they are good but once you have a decent UK service with one provider in their you don’t really need another.

    $3 more I can get Xen, 1GB Ram, SSD etc at linode

    for 61c less I can get about the same from Digital Ocean but more from Vultr.

    And neither of the above are in Rapidswitch with every other provider on LET.

    Sorry, not trying to burst the providers balloon but when you are trying to compete against the 3 above whilst in Rapidswtich you need to be a bit more special than the rest.

    I’ve got a VPS with XEN Smart and had it 3 years +. Never had a problem with it. Haven’t raised any tickets in all that time as it all just works :) I use it to host a few websites.
