Hi,

In this era, Internet Bandwidth speed is upgraded with low cost. Do you still consider to buy a 100 Mbit/s port speed VPS if that is a Good Deal ??

Or, you always check if the provider is providing 1 Gbit/s or not ??

Looking for your comments.

It really depends what you are trying to achieve. In most cases 100Mbit is more than enough. and sometimes better than oversold gigabits plans.

Thanks

Use to but not now as part of the criteria i have is how fast you can transfer backups and restore backups. And at 100Mbps you'd be limiting yourself to 8-10MB/s at best. Too slow for any decent sized backup data set :)

Both are very good points.

For most users (even users that do need a dedicated server), 100Mbps is more then enough.

Restoring backups is where the potential problem can come in. Of course it depends on how much data you would need to restore in that situation.
If you will have 100Gb of data, it's not a big deal. If you have a server with TB's of data, then a full restore could be quite time consuming!

I would say if you have less than say around 10-50GB of data then it isn't so much of a big deal, but any more than that and it can be painfully slow. But if you aren't in a rush, then it is fine.

It depends on VPS purpose and 100 Mbps could still be a deal. If it is for personal use then 100 Mbps is more then enough. However for production of a project I wouldn't choose such speed.

This actually depends on what you are gonna use it for, if other specifications are fine, and even if DDoS Protection is there, i will get it.

Hi, there are two major factors in play,
1) Number of active connection
2) content overall size / Type

ex. streaming video's | general blog site
while choosing for streaming server, definitely require Max. Network capacity.
while choosing for general blog site 100 mbps would be enough.

You should think about follow aspects as well,
1) network capacity
2) connectivity
3) facility | location
4) server spec.
5) Many other factors....

With all the respect this question demonstrated ignorance. Why? Most servers that web hosts use to provide VPS hosting are connected on 1 Gbps ports to any switches. Having said that a logical limit of 100 Mbps on any particular VPS is a reasonable bandwidth limit. In order to offer more than 100 Mbps logical limit per VPS, web hosts need to use 10 Gbps connection between the infrastructure nodes (servers) and the network switches. It is doable and some do it. It is expensive, however. Therefore most VPS hosting providers just use 1 Gbps ports per node.

all about your usage. if its enough then go for a 100mbps port as it will be more than enough and will serve you good with a very light load of cost. 1gbps is god but mostly people oversell and mostly is not required as well. its now just a feature that people demand mostly without the knowledge that 100mbps i more than enough in most case
