Vultr's new $2.5/mo plan [Updated: 1th Nov 2017]

UPDATE: 1st November 2017

The below listed plan is currently only available in Miami, Florida, US and New Jersey, US! All other locations start from $5/month. It is unknown when the other locations will be available for $2.5/month.

This will be updated when new information arrives Smile .

The DigitalOcean competitor Vultr has released a plan that costs only $2.5/mo ($0.004/hour). This is $2.5 cheaper than the cheapest plan on DO. The plan however offers almost all that DO's $5 plan offers for just $2.5 with a small difference in bandwidth.

The $2.5/mo ($0.004/hour) plan has the following specifications:
- 512 MB RAM (same on DO)
- 1 CPU Core (same on DO)
- 20 GB SSD (same on DO)
- 500 GB Traffic/Month (1 TB on DO)
- Free outbound traffic (see post #25)
- Available in any of the Vultr locations (Frankfurt in Germany, Paris in France, Amsterdam in Netherlands, London in UK, Dallas/Miami/Silicon Valey/Atlanta/Chicago/Los Angeles/New York/Seattle in United States, Singapore, Tokyo in Japan and Sydney in Australia)


I got one myself in Tokyo, Japan.
It's really cheap with ssd disk space and multi location choices
how about the network connectify speed?
Maybe I will change this provider for my private proxy connection
Still can't decide whether to get Singapore or Japan.
Can you include a benchmark from your Singapore vps?

Hope to have the required minimum deposit of $5 available soon and be able to give them a try. At this price point it becomes really attractive to switch from DO to Vultr...
Vultr seems to be very cheap compared to Digital Ocean, only thing I see that I get more is the bandwidth, which is double, but I'll live with 500GB. Smile
The pricing makes it very attractive to go to Vultr instead of Digital Ocean now, maybe I should get one from Vultr now...

Maybe worth to mention that new customers get additional $5 for free on their deposit: deposit $5 get $10 credit, deposit $10 get $15 credit and so on.

You can also get a few free $1 credits by following them on Twitter and do other small Twitter related tasks.

@Lux I have a Japan instance only.
Their also matching the customer's first deposit, so it's worth it to make a $100 deposit (that's the max they will match) if you need a lot of instances or your staying with them for a long, long time (considering that the cheapest you can go each month is $2.5 :p). Here's the link for that:
They also used to give $50 credits if you made a deposit (I forgot the amount you were required..). Too bad that ended. D:

The specs for the VPS seems to be very good.  I did notice cachefly showing 174MB/s, what connection speed is the VPS on?  Because that's more then one gigabit....

So many locations ! They even have Tokyo in Japan and now I so badly want to get one of these $2.50 vps with location as Tokyo. Right now I don't have any use for that but still just hard to resist because of super low price and rare location.
