How can you factor in VAT when comparing since you are subject to VAT on everything? Obviously purchases made outside the EU are not going to be collected with VAT, but are you not still responsible to pay it on your own? - Tim Flavin from "Hostigation.com"
I'm glad you are satisfied with our service. Speeds look good, I'm actually glad you posted that because your upgrade should have included more CPU. Note the 800MHz is only because of speed stepping (power efficiency), each CPU core will slow down to 800MHz upon low use, but scale up to 3.4GHz when needed.

Anyway, it's good to have this "free" upgrade and "free" discount!
We built a few AMD X6, 6xRAID10 systems a few years back. We try to make use of our systems for as long as they are useful. We recently upgraded them all to SSD caching, so they performing great for smaller servers. We have a mixture of Intel and AMD systems. Larger virtual servers are automatically assigned to larger systems.
