Totally agree with you.

I have been thinking same since new server ranges and policies came up at August 2009. I really don't know how to thank OVH because of price revisions of Ripe IPs. I have already paid 3 x 60 EUR (180 EUR) for 3 blocks of 16 Ripe IPs. Now I see that it could cost just 66 EUR for total 3 blocks of 16 Ripe IPs. I really don't know what to say anymore.

I have been working with OVH since 2007 I have never seen that situation is going worse day by day. Besides, although they increase the prices it seems the lower support that I get. My problems started to being solved in 15 days. For example again, I couldn't get any response from them for 5 hours from now on. Surprise! It is not a software based or anything else contact request. I have ordered Superplan SSD and my order is waiting for 17 hours.

As I mentioned before, I really don't know what to say anymore. They have increased prices even so crisis and made really hard to order or use new servers. However, even after all, we continued to support OVH and use services from them. I really would like quote this again:

that's a great bargain, as long as it's not that High anymore. It's more pricey from the previous.

It's better that it went down though crisis is raising around.

OVH Does not really care about long term customers ... that's it now.

I think this price change is pretty ludicrous especially without any official contact in regards to this. I was going to order a Ripe IP block for use on VPS's but it's just not cost effective to setup any more.

Waited for the answer.. and than was going to order.. but noticed a price increase of 200 Euros.

Instead of ignoring you could get in contact
Sorry, I think your question got missed in that rather detailed thread.

If you order a RIPE Block and spilt them into FailOver IPs, you keep the netname and description.

It has nothing to do with a normal price change. You guys tripled the price.

And it's not just this.. setup fees (because we are hackers? - just another way to make more money.)

Doubled the price for Additional Bandwidth
Tripled the price for 256 IPs
Bandwidth Limits
Slow Speeds on 1 Gbps servers.

Prices are getting higher and higher. And you do nothing for long term customers. I thought more times about leaving OVH, but I stayed and paid the setup fees etc.... But now you charge 200+ Euros more for 256 IPs.
It's 200 EUROS.. thats not a small amount.

These subtle differences is something that OVH will need to be aware of when you welcome US and Canadian clients (in fact, given that I'm more used to US English, I initially found your response to RapidSpeeds offensive, Fozle).

As a side note, while we're on the topic of this, the 2nd most common language in the US is Spanish - will the ES branch prepared to deal with US customers, as well as the subtle difference between US / Latino Spanish and European Spanish (I mean, "carajo" has a totally different [and offensive] meaning in US / Latino Spanish than in Europe).



It would be more worthwhile your efforts if these "overlords" actually did something with them, or at the very least acknowledge them, because a lot of the same issues keep recurring.
Indeed myatu and I know ( yo se) the meaning ( que significa) of (de) "carajo" in (en) every place (cualquier lugar) and (y) in (en) every sense ( cualquier sentido).

carajo down here ( latam) : not generally used in a particular way of being offensive just of protesting when something comes out in a way you would not like. It would be like crap. You would not say a person you are crap. You would probably say you are a pece of sh ( which could be also used for an object)

Personally I don't like to post unless I have something constructive to say, however I don't think the price change is in anticipation of US / CA customers to be honest, and most customers wanting to buy a few extra IPs now get a better deal. If you need large blocks you probably would consider the larger block prices quite reasonable in comparison to the market, but if not by all means shout about it, we are listening.

wtf.. tell me that's just your sense of humour?

because..

1) gay = happy.
2) my lil bro is gay.
3) the person I run my network with is gay.

So if they don't take it personally, I fail to see why you should...

So is the 15 "professional use" charge still applicable? If so, I'd prefer higher one-off IP charges with no monthly fee. I really cannot see how OVH can justify this cost... Oles?

Looks intresting, Will you be shipping the servers over to there and have ovh install them or are you taking them over yourself?

Wounder in time to come if ovh will offer colo in the uk too

Problem is, I have several small business contracts, and alot of happy non-business customers who would not mind switching to ovh colo, so at the end of the day, it's a 12month contract with OVH which I am sure they will be happy about - it's guaranteed money for them.

Flying to france is cheap with easyjet, plus we have our grandparents home in France we can use as french address - I have been keeping a keen eye on OVH colo and it hasn't changed.

We only want a half rack to begin with, and if all goes well, we will need about5/6 racks with our current consumer base and anticipated sales.

They way it's been going, I wouldn't even trust OVH's co-location services. By the time you've traveled from London to Paris, the person at the security desk will say "Oh, but OVH has moved co-location operations to Marseille". And by the time you reach Marseille, it'll be "Sorry, we had to increase our prices by 200% because we were undersold". And if you dare to say "But, a few hours ago it was cheaper and you were still in Paris!!" -- "Ah, but you're not French so you do not understand. Champagne, oui?"

Take it you are just changing price structures without letting the public know in anticipation of selling to the US/CA market...

Great to hear IP prices went down

But would be great to see you OVH emailing us to let us know.

And if they could update the Kimsufi Webistes though..

Prices went down on small blocks but higher blocks seems expensive now.
