    Question Canadian VPS Needed.

    Looking for a VPS in Canada with 10 Hops or less to my location here in Saskatoon,SK. Currently hosted out of Chicago @ 10 Hops & 40MS ping times.

    Curious if there are any Canadian providers that can achieve the same?

    Thanks...

    Only way to find out is to ask for test IP's from Canadian providers and run traceroutes it all depends on the individual provider's routing.

    Hence my current hosts numbers listed in the post!

    But thx

    PS: I think you have a problem with the header on your website as it's gone sideways a tad... Maybe it's supposed to do that?

    What ISP are you with?

    Try and find a host that is peered at TorIX... Most Canadian ISP's peer there and it dramatically reduces latency.

    What Ping time are you looking to get? 40ms from Saskatoon to Chicago is quite good.

    Is your current target audience located in Canada? I suppose the best latency fir you would be if you have VPS in Chicago area.

    Thanks heh... My ISP is "Shaw" I get great service out of Chicago. Would be nice to get the same service and price here and support my own Country. I doubt it but it's worth looking I guess.

    For sure it seems that way!
    Yeah out of the Canadian companies I tested so far, Chicago beats them all. I get the least amount of latency

    Sorry guys... Didn't mention this. I Would (prefer) not spend no more then 20$ a month for a VPS. Storage and Transfer limits? Would be nice if they fell in line with decent shared offerings. I currently run I think ten sites average 5-10 pages and a couple of heavy wordpress at my current shared hosting.

    I appreciate the information folks the more the better

    Update for my fellow Canucks: So far "smoothvps" seems to be the fastest from my location.
