Well I got a server from them.. Seatle datacenter and I was getting very poor speeds.. Around 35mB/s downloading and 20mB/s uploading. Even to my home PC (UK) I could hardly push 400kb/s on my 10meg cable line.. I got moved to another server in there Washington datacenter and speeds to a few test users was much better. But for high speed stuff I was still limited to 35mB/s maybe the network or i'm just dead unlucky with servers at the moment lol.. I would have to say though the customer support was very good even with the time difference.
Needless to say I wasnt very impressed by the speeds and asked for a refund, but was very happy to recieve that full refund. Deffo a company I would try again and hopefully when that time comes it will perform a little bit better for me.

I have 2 gbit servers from OVH. One a eg bestof which is very poor on upload but I recently got myself a eg max and the upload is much better on it. I think this prolly has to do with the location of each of my servers more than anything though. The eg bestof struggles with about 20mB/s across the whole server while the Max one I have seen push 90mB/s so i'm very pleased with that one. The only real problem is now the bandwidth limit which is why I have decided to try 100tb.com if they can statisfy my needs which is likely to only be about 20 - 40tb per month then I will be moving all of my servers in that direction.

Like someone said before softlayer have a very good reputation and i'm sure they treat there customers a bit better than OVH although I have never used them before so I'm only guessing and going off the 100's of reviews I have read.
East coast location was said to work quite nicely to Europe. Also read that SL is expanding its BW and buying transit (?) from equinix which I do not get the idea of this as I lack of tech knowledge.

Softlayer are widely considered to run the best datacentres in the world along with a superb network.

You're complaining about 15MB/s to OVH on a single thread? Try it the other way round .

this 100tb.com looks pretty good. Although from the test file they have supplied me the speed was not great to Europe. I tested on a OVH gbit box although it was in use and got about 15mB/s
http://speedtest.wdc01.softlayer.com...ds/test100.zip

Does anyone have any experience with them. I have read some pretty good reviews and i'm sure 100tb per month will satisfy my needs

100tb.com = UK2 Group = the British version of 1and1 = "Buy your customers, don't win them".

I have more respect for OVH, who built things up from the ground without buying out the little guys.

Oh, PS: I meant that as a personal statement. Doesn't reflect my experience with their service, which I'll refrain from discussing

how about 100tb.com? the network belongs to softlayer

Same here. Horrible speeds (less than 1 Mbps!)
