US vs AUD pricing
new OVH Australia Sydney dedicated special Dedicated Servers
excludes 10% GST tax so need to add that
looks like it's 50% off first month only
Speedtest seems slow :/
Not the best for install time.
Syncing files from CA to SGP.
Singapore network is pretty bad, Linode is constantly having issues with it
I hope it will improve in the coming months.
I had a linode on SG during one year and had to move it since got tired of network issues. Last time I had to report those issues myself and then, they updated SG network status page. I got tired of being a SG monitor
My SG Live Server.
Not bad at all

I wanted that "Intel Xeon E3-1270v6 - 4c/8t - 3.8GHz" for so many months on SG but now it has low RAM.
The UK prices are now out for a few more servers. Bit of a bump in monthly over established EU prices.
Must be the cost of power/rates in the UK, and similar if not equal pricing to Germany.
The discovery one is not a bad price, £64.98+vat with 2x480SSD, only 250Mbps - I've not really pushed past this according to the network graphs in linode/nixstats.
A more direct comparison might be the SP-32( no EG30+ avail ).
UK, 79.99+vat @ 20%,
France, £59.99. + vat @ 20%.
i.e. £24 minimum bump for a 'UK' location, on-base machines!
So the plus I see in the UK:
Marginally less latency. - 80% of my traffic is UK & 50% of that south of Birmingham. But as mentioned before a hop to GRA from UK pops can't be that much...
A possibly cleaner IP range. - I send via AWS so moot.
Different staff. - Same company philosophy I imagine.
It's UK based. - Whatever that means given we're still in Europe. I have no legal req to host in the UK, only Europe, for now.
Cost wise it's still very tempting, going from a 24Gb linode + a few satellites is a good saving.
Whilst I know I'm on a single parent/shared node at Linode, I do know they are watching the physical host.
3x##-32 servers in GRA running Galera/HA gives me redundancy, for less to equal monthly spend I have with linode, but more headaches in setup
I think the only feature I'd miss is the snapshot, and it's one I've never actually had to use. I tend to snapshot before updates; just in case. Having a daily then 3 and one week old is reassuring too.
TL;DR So more ££ for LDN vs GRA...choices choices.
