I know I don't post allot here, but I wanted to share this as I know some of you, like me wanted a server closer to home.
10GB in Texas, I'm east coast and can saturate my 1GB service at home from here. Hitting 2gb on nzbs
Moved here from hetzner for better speeds in the US, they say 10TB but they don't limit it.

Dual Intel Xeon E5-2630L v2 (Dallas, TX)
12 Cores at 2.4GHz
64GB DDR3 ECC Memory
2x 960GB Enterprise SSD
LSI 9265-8i RAID w/ Cache & BBU
10TB Monthly Bandwidth on a 10Gbps Port
Promo code at checktout DUALE5FOR89 brings the price to $89/mo

Caveats, I did have them set up a KVM for me so I can break the raid1 into 2 raid 0 disks then installed using ubuntu minimal. I didn't test dong an OS reload using their control panel after breaking the mirror

I can post some screen shots if you would like, been with them just over a month now, no complaints from users or myself

Nice spec and price seems decent. If you have a chance the advanced speedtest under Tools would be useful to gauge what the connectivity is actually like, either that or my old faithful wget -qO- bench.sh | bash uses slightly different end points.

looks good, i just noticed the 10TB bandwidth on a 10gig pipe. That might be a handicap and wonder what their overages are, but good if just a direct play server.

Nice. Might have to look into that. Not far from TX myself and can assist rather than going the CND route.

"Thanks for your inquiry :)

Additional 10 TB bandwidth can be added at any time on any of our server plans for just $12.50/m per 10 TB. For bulk quantities above 100 TB, we can go as low as $9/m per 10 TB.

Spin Servers does not charge bandwidth overages at this time, but rather - we personally work with our customers well in advance before they hit an overage to discuss options (such as a bandwidth upgrade plan, or port capping to a lower Internet speed until the next billing cycle). We are very easygoing as a provider when it comes to bandwidth :)

Please let us know if you have any further questions - we look forward to working with you!

This is the response I got.
Waiting on a reply to see how they limit the port speed.

That is their canned reply, I went 3TB over last month and didn't get an email or anything from them. I tend to stay under 10TB most months.

Payments, they take paypal, bitcoin, alipay, etc.

That’s good they can say they can work with. I mean, 10TB is hard to pull unless your just starting. But they imply they could cut you off or charge at anytime. I know wholesaleinternet goes to to 100TB. Still good for a provider for the US.

Hi all!

This is Christopher, a representative for Spin Servers. I came across this thread today and wanted to say hello!

Thanks for all of the great feedback here - you guys are great and seem like a real friendly bunch :)

To clarify regarding the bandwidth questions mentioned above -- while our dedicated servers by default include 10 TB monthly transfer (10,000GB) - this is a monthly allotment and is reset every month. Most of our users, even those who utilize the server for Plex Hosting purposes, find this to be more than enough (as @PlexFan mentioned, it's realistically hard to pull off more). In the case where additional bandwidth is needed, it can be added at anytime for just $12.50/month per 10TB. There are also other options available -- we try to be as easygoing with our customers when it comes to bandwidth and flexibility :)

The special that the OP (@madbuda) mentioned is still available for ordering -- in addition, we also have the below Black Friday special available for instant deployment (which provides more storage):

Dual Intel Xeon E5-2630L v2 (Dallas, TX)
12 Cores at 2.4GHz / 24 Threads
128GB DDR3 ECC RAM
4x 2TB SATA HDD's
Hardware RAID w/ Cache & BBU
10TB Monthly Bandwidth on a 10Gbps Port
$99/month, $0 setup fee (with promo code below)
Order Link: https://www.spinservers.com/cart.php?a=add&pid=72
Promo Code: PREBLACKFRIDAY

If anyone has any questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly at [email protected]! Thanks again!

I ordered a Server from these guys just to test it and I have had nothing but issues with them. Not a good solution for plex streaming (n)

Really weird you are limited to 10TB. I did 18.9 TB last month no problems, alerts, or emails. Service section shows unlimited for me

Decent deal but for whatever reason the Kansas data centers (Joe's datacenter, wholesale internet, noxic, etc) seem to have very competitive pricing. Got a 16 core 32 thread 32gb 2tb ssd with 10g port and 100tb monthly limit for $70/mo. Not trying to minimize your post by any means, just throwing it out there as another option. No affiliation with any of them btw.
