Unless you have clients over the pond you would be crazy to order a BHS for use in Europe. (Unless of course just using it for backups which would be ok)
Actually you may be surprised, as I was, with how many EU residents will use it.

Mine is a game server intended for the NA community, a significant number of EU players are regulars on it despite the ping. Some hae reported the ping to be only 20-40 ms worse than the RBX server when connecting from Sweden for example. And the ingame stats support this.

I'm in the UK and it is (as I said above) around 80ms more for me. But at 112ms it is quite stable and usable.

One of my servers is in BHS and the latency is +80ms compared to my RBX servers.

Depends on what you want it for and where your main user base is likely to be.

IIRC I had to go via the NA OVH site to place the order.

Best speeds to UK would be from GRA and RBX, the new data centre is geographically closer and is less than 3ms to LDN. GRA - LDN < 3ms

I got a SP from BHS back when they was only 100mb.... I was able to achieve very close to that 90+mb/s

Latency was around 40-50ms tho
