    Question UK or European?

    Do you think that if getting a UK server the extra is worth it for a lower ping? or, do you think that it would be better to use a european company to get a slightly higher ping for less?

    What do you think? Also any reccomendations on a north european server provider?

    Thanks alot.

    Depends on what is important to you, what you want from the service provision.

    I would tend to think less about ping/latency/RTT/bandwidth and think more about service quality as a whole.

    You can get some very high bandwidth hosting for reasonable prices on mainland Europe, but I've also read bad things (here) about the network reliability of some of those providers.

    Views expressed are my own and not those of the company.
