What happens after using a couple of terrabytes of bandwidth on a cheap VPS that advertises unmetered bandwidth:

[email protected]:/tmp# wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash
CPU model :  QEMU Virtual CPU version 1.0
Number of cores : 1
CPU frequency :  2099.998 MHz
Total amount of ram : 242 MB
Total amount of swap : 0 MB
System uptime :   3 min,
Download speed from CacheFly: 5.70KB/s
Download speed from Linode, Atlanta GA: 8.46KB/s
^C

(After fresh restart with no other services running in the background)

There are no caps imposed on the download and upload speeds other than physical limitations of hardware.

No we do not limit monthly bandwidth in anyway. We allow you to fully utilize the network and burst traffic without limits.

Honestly, I’m not at all surprised.


I’m still using a VPS from Mammoth Networks for my personal needs. So far everything has been great, by far my favorite Australian based VPS.
