Hmm, I haven't seen levels like this in a while. Good luck to those applying! These specs will still suffice for most of what people plan to do.

So sad about this one, compared to the another giveaway. Maybe this one is the smallest (ever?) giveaway.

Hope anyone who has applied lucky to get one of these.

I disagree with the comments about the giveaway being small. While there are only a few choices, the total number of VPSes available is actually fairly high.

NO Matter what type of servers they would offer We really need more sponsors. I think thats something everyone can agree. We are getting new members but not new vps. We keep loosing what's already have here.

Anyway I'm sticking witg my beloved vps18. I haven't change a vps since I got my 1st vps. This one is the best in lot.

Totally agreed.  If it hadn't been for the Charlotte location I'd have competed for a VPS 18.  I tried Charlotte with a subscribed VPS two months ago.  Initially it looked OK, but that must have been a fluke, as my ISP is probably too far from the hub - there were huge peaks and valleys in the speed and performance - not a very good experience.  I've managed to change the location to London recently and the performance is like night and day - London seems to be a good match for my ISP in South Africa.  As long as I'm in South Africa, Charlotte is not a good location for me.  Best VPS is one with a European location - London is fastest, followed by Amsterdam and then Frankfurt.  France is better than the US but not as good as Amsterdam.  When I'm in the UAE German location is the best for me and last I was there US location was better than London, Netherlands and Paris.

@Ignis @Hidden Refuge I've got a question about HostUS.  When one subscribes, one can ask for London or Amsterdam locations - for no extra cost.  The other locations in the Far East - Hong Kong and Singapore and Australia are charged extra.  But not London or Amsterdam.

Do we at FreeVPS have a choice of US locations only, or can we ask for London and Netherlands location as well?  Is it possible to find out for us?  Unless you know already.  That would make the VPS 15 much more attractive.

@Ignis
Of course by small they mean small servers.
Almost everyone here likes bigger servers (even if they don't really need them lol)

These servers aren't bad. VPS 18 I'm back! lol.

@deanhills The last time I asked they've told me that only the mentioned locations in the VPS information page are sponsored. That was after a mail we got about new a location. I guess the mail was basically sent to all customers with a VPS service at HostUS. So it was a general thing but isn't appplying to us as we're getting the service sponsored.

All of this has been a while ago. I guess a fresh support ticket about the additional locations could get a new or the same answer.

That would be awesome.  I'm totally at their feet at the moment as the service I received when I asked for a cancellation of my cancellation was awesome.  The turn around time with the tickets has always been consistently good from 2016 when I first started to use them.  Last night was no exception.  I asked them to change my location to London since the VPS had to be recreated anyway, and from the moment I received my IP I was having a really great VPS experience.

Here's the result of my speed test with the London location:

The low ping is particularly awesome - here's the last speedtest I took when the HostUS VPS had a Charlotte Location - performance was inconsistent - like sometimes fast and sometimes very very slow - like something is holding it back at times:

The ping below was just after I took occupation of the VPS at the beginning of November 2017.  I could live with it then - although compared with the VPS experience I'm having with my London location it's like night and day.

I'm sure the Netherlands will also be good as when I tested the IP that they provide on their Website it was slightly slower than London location.
