How is the 1gbit port metered bandwidth server speeds?

Yep, but generally I have no problems, and I've had very few complaints since starting my services with OVH, so they can't be as bad as some people make out. And at least they're helpful at trying to find problems related to speed, such as getting more LINX peering, etc, and being in talks with Virgin Media to change to their LINX peering rather than the German transit they were using.

Where "some locations" is synonymous to "locations where no peering agreement exists". OVH call this Quality of Service software on their routers. Lols

Theoretically you're right, but people have "proven" that OVH appear to throttle the gigabit servers to some locations more than the 100Mbps ones. It's difficult to know without trying it.

Actually the 100Mbit servers get better speeds to outside world sometimes than the Gbit, not sure why I think it is because of the fact the subnets are the same size but obviously X 100Mbit servers will use less bw than X Gbit servers.

Id agree with that to be honest, if you arent maxing your current connection, i cant see upping that would make any difference to the throughput.

If you want good speeds to the world i would recommend the UK.

Europe yes, US mostly yes, Middle east pretty crap.

about 20% of US will be terrible speeds, and 50% ME.
