Samba 3G - Advert Supported Free Network

Samba 3G – Advert Supported Free Network

I promised this review to a few people so I have finally got around to writing it. For those that is in a hurry I can sum the review up in one line – if you are in a Three enabled area that it will work well but the ads is a bit buggy and some time does not credit you for them.

Samba 3G is a mobile 3G service that gives you credit in the form of megabytes that you can use on pretty much anything that is able to use 3G in exchange for viewing adverts or by topping up with cash but that does beat the point. If you are wondering which provider Samba 3G uses it is the Three Network so if you live in an area where Three works perfectly then this will work perfectly and if you live in a place where it doesn’t, this will not.

VPS.NET: My Review

Published on 15th November 2011 – 18 Heshvan 5772. Last updated on December 24, 2019.

As I am sure you know, Tweaked for your Pleasure is hosted on a few nodes at vps.net. While it is sad to say that originally my experiences at VPS.NET was okay, I ended up leaving them due to their SAN issues.

However a while back I was sent an email about their discounted nodes and I have to say, vps.net itself has improved big time. Not only does the SAN issues seem to have gone (at least on the London clouds) but support itself seems to have improved.

My current setup with vps.net is running the latest CentOS image (others you are able to use such as Debian) and their free licence for ISPManager. With VPS.NET you are able to get a free ISPManager licence (I think it is the Pro Edition) which I warn you now, does not work well on Debian and if you are going to pick that license then make sure to select CentOS as your operating system.

BurstNET: My Review

Published on 3rd June 2010 – 21 Sivan 5770. Last updated on December 24, 2019.

Cjb, Fasthost, The Hosting, Shacow, The Planet, Galaxy Solutions, Saidcom, Gretzkyhosting, FDCServers, DME Hosting and now BurstNET has joined the list of past web hosts / data centers that I have used over the years of Tweaked for your Pleasure life and this time I am going to write a little review on BurstNET.

Overall I would have to say my experience was good but there was some hipcups with their service but for the price they charge I don’t actually expect much else. So, for the review…

Support

I will start of that with BurstNET support seems to be quite varied. Overall BurstNET would tend to reply within 1 – 4 hours but there have been times when posting on Web Hosting Talk actually got them to reply faster then they normally would. Maybe it is because BurstNET representative on there and jumping your tickets up but I do not know why.
