    Question fast pipe to oz?

    Hello, I need a vps host located in the USA but with a fast data link to Australia. Is this possible? it probably should be on the west coast in CA or WA? anyone can help me?



    thanks

    Windows or Linux? Also, do you have specific requirements such as the control panel of choice?

    I would recommend something in the Los Angeles area - KnownHost recently announced their new presence there. You may want to give them a shot. I've been a customer of theirs for over a year - they provide an excellent service.

    steadcom - fast link via LA to ozzy.

    I could get you hosting here in auckland, but that would be backtracking

    huh?

    Steadcom and Knownhost are VPS providers with services available on the US West Coast, this would be the best location to provide services into AU, that is unless you want a VPS in AU.

    Okay, so you want quantitative results.

    This is using a KnownHost test IP:
