    Better overall network: hostdime, hivelocity, peer1?

    Of these three, who has the most reliable/faster network with traffic coming from the Caribbean?

    In terms of hardware/bandwidth, they each have a solution that I can live with. But who has the better and more reliable network?

    Peer1/Serverbeach claim that they have the "SuperNetwork" which makes connection speeds faster and virtually 0 downtime. Is this SuperNetwork actually as fast as they claim? Peer1 is actually my top choice right now.

    Thanks.

    I would say HostDime, we have so much dedicated/colocated servers with them and network has been amazingly great.

    Network capacity wise you may go with hivelocity, Support and management wise you are all the way to go with HostDime.

    So take this into consideration.

    Of the 3 providers you mention, Hostdime and Hivelocity are actually outside Miami (Tampa/Orlando) so you'd add a few ms to reach you from the Carribean, although for serving web pages that might not be noticeable. Yes, Peer1 have a great network (Serverbeach is the unmanaged servers arm of Peer1) and have a POP in Miami.

    You're probably best trying tracerts and pings to each provider - For Hostdime and HiVelocity you can test to their web sites. For Peer1 use 216.187.124.129 which is in their Miami POP.
