BuyVM: LV E3-KVM 2GB

Today I upgraded one of my KVM boxes that I have with BuyVM. In that process I also had it migrated onto their new node (lv-kvm21); the difference is that they switched from using the L5639 to the newer E3 CPU. They also switched from mechanical drives to solid state drives.

You can click here to buy the package I have. I have included a very basic test below and you can compare this test to the older test, located here.

UPDATE

I disabled the DDoS-filtering mode from “always on” to use only “sensing” and this dramatically improved the download speeds. As per:
