    I need giga-international.com reviews

    I'm thinking of hiring Giga-international.com's colocation, and I would like some reviews about them.

    Are they good? Is the support good? Uptime, hardware repair..... ?

    I've only been there a couple of months, but so far so good.

    The server was set up quickly. I don't think it's a rackmount server, but they do use good hardware, you can see the specs and choices they made (e.g. brand name of the RAM, hard drives etc) on their website. They are quite proud I think of what they use. They promise to have lots of spare parts available on site as well. I got RAID 1 and a quad core CPU with 8 gigabytes of RAM, it's nice and quick. The price is good. I would normally like a rack-mounted server, but to be honest, this is fine and good value. If they're using good quality parts with replacements on hand then I don't mind.

    The network seems fine, there haven't been any outages since I've been there anyway. Here are a couple of speed tests for you:

    Downloading from France:

    These are just 2 random sites, so not an amazingly reliable test to do, but it gives you some idea anyway. I've had up to about 10M/s depending on where I downloaded from.

    I've contacted support once and they replied pretty quickly. I've also contacted billing once and again, very quick and helpful reply.

    So it's a bit early to say after only about 2 months, but so far I'm liking it. Hope that helps.
