    anyone tried OVH.com?

    they seem to be really really REALLY cheap! shared 100Mbit (dunno if capped)... 250GB HDD, 1GB RAM... basically like DediBox/BestOfData but with MORE HD and hopefully better speeds - http://ovh.com/fr/produits/start100mpluslarge.xml

    anyone OUTSIDE of France tried them yet? how're the speeds? do they accept PayPal? i tried ordering a server but it was charging me for VAT even though i'm not in .eu so i'm guessing it's for the French ppl only.

    any comments?

    Do we really need yet another OVH thread? You don't even have to search, just scroll down; there have been several threads open about them over the last couple days.

    You get your full 100Mbps (not 10).
