Promoting Upcloud, my new provider!
If you use digitalocean or whatever to host your instance, go check out where I'm moving to. Upcloud. https://upcloud.com/signup/?promo=CHA39H (ref link, if you top up 10$, I'm getting 50$ and you get an additional 25$ credits)
It is incredible. A 5$ cloud machine already outperforms my 400€ machine in terms of iops and especially networking, haven't seen such flawless and incredible network speeds in a decade. I nearly instantly download with my homes max speed, no build up.
