    I'm about to jump from OVH SGP due to network issue.
    Any feedbacks from old/current users?

    Thanks!

    Search WHT and lowendtalk forums. From memory, Leaseweb have high bandwidth overage charges and customers are reporting sometimes their bandwidth overages reported by Leaseweb don't match what their own server's bandwidth usage or the control panel set bandwidth threshold preset they set doesn't work and Leaseweb continue to serve visitors pass the preset bandwidth threshold. So they get bills for bandwidth overage in the $10,000s of dollars. Or if you get DDOS attacked, Leaseweb does pass the bandwidth cost over to customer too.

    I haven't used them myself, but I definitely wouldn't be using them from what I read.

    examples
    Problem is even if you do set bandwidth limits, customers have reported the limits don't work, so you end up with a very high bandwidth overage amount/cost if you have alot of traffic !

    Yeah knowing your bandwidth usage, Leaseweb would be a costly affair for you !!!
