Christ.

I've heard some horror stories about UK2, but that... I don't see how they can pull a move like that and expect anyone to ever trust them again.

From seeing what happened to SimpleCDN....I wouldn't touch 100TB unless you are wanting to use it for a gaming server and don't care if you get shutdown randomly....

Domestic speeds do suck in this country. It'd be faster delivering a printed e-mail by horse and carriage here.

Nevertheless, 100TB is owned by UK2Group. I wouldn't want to touch that with a 10ft pole. They're the "Apple" of marketing: selling you a pricey, polished turd.

I smell fish with that...

They mean they have put everything as "out of stock" because they cant get their hardware delivered and racked within their london "datacenter" because of all this damn snow.

My mail man brought me half a van load this morning, thats the first time within a week i have had a delivery...

I have 60 matx case's on order... So i wonder when they will come, Been waiting the whole of 2 weeks for them now, No doubt their in a lorry somewhere in a lorry park or the likes...

This applies equally to every country...

Verizon's FiOS? That's only being rolled out in major areas. BT is rolling out 40/10 VDSL, and starting something of a bandwidth race with Virgin.

Yes, the UK does have a **** network for broadband, admittedly.

About the overselling: yes of course they are. But every datacentre in the world oversells bandwidth.

Yet the 100TB brand over in the U.S is based in softlayer which is one of the best datacenters in the world, In terms of connectivity.

I,ll be glad to see how 100TB works out in the UK when VAT is set to increase

Yes i understand everyone is a bandwidth overseller, However theirs overselling and theirs grossy overselling to the point that it nearly becomes "false advertisement"

There's overselling and there's overcomitting. They don't offer 100TB on their cloud products because they said they do not have the infrastructure to guarantee it (ie overcomitting) so I'd assume they're only offering this in London because they have the infrastructure.

And yeah they've been running 100TB in the US for a while now so they're going to have a good idea how much bandwidth the average client actually uses and leave some headroom.

I,d like to see someone push the full 100TB.

Anyhow 100TB isnt the only firm offering "100TB" also burstnet.eu is offering 100TB on a 1Gbps Port on their colocation in manchester for 200

Have Fun

Commercial networks are a lot better than broadband networks. The UK has great bandwidth, it's just more expensive than other countries.

Well, no, not really. I think you're thinking of consumer broadband networks...

100TB is owned by UK2, though, so I'd avoid it like the plague.

crap? Granted they're sold out, but it was only $199.

You're getting much more bandwidth at a much higher quality than somewhere like OVH offer.

It'll certainly be competition for OVH, and appeal to seedboxers where bandwidth is more important than hardware. Will be interesting to see how OVH respond.

Personally, my machine rarely pushes over 300GB in a month...
