    I am looking for a VPS based in Australia. I am currently using Digital Ocean and Linode for some of my sites. While I am happy with both of them they don't offer any local data centres.
    I am looking at Vultr. The local plans used to have lower data limits than the offshore ones. Now they are offering the same plans for all regions.
    For a monthly $10.00 I can get.
    Sydney location.
    1CPU,
    1GB,
    20GM SSD,
    2TB data transfer per month.
    They seem to be good value at the moment.
    Any experience with them lately?

    Late reply but I'm 100% using BinaryLane (aka Mammoth Networks) these days.

    Awesome elastic servers - So if you need more memory, disk space, bandwidth, IP's, CPUs all you do is request it in the portal, your server reboots and off you go. Options for provisioning servers in Brisbane or Sydney too. Proper KVM too, they have a web based shell console which is super fricking handy sometimes.

    I'm also very happy with the level of tech support received. Not that I need a lot but they respond fairly quickly.

    Pricing is also amazing. I've been using them for about 12 months now, very solid and user friendly product.

    Sorry I noticed this today, there are a heap of providers, the first question is what do you want to use the VPS for ? That has an impact on who I would recommend.

    Vultr is pretty awesome too - I almost signed up but for the money, BinaryLane is winning for me.
