And if it's the new protections in place, is there any way to get this removed from my server?

Ok, after watching the ovh weathermap pretty closely, and looking over traceroutes both from the server to home, and from home to the server, it seems like it's maybe some issues with transit.

It seems that the links between US and Europe are pretty saturated, more so than they used to be, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that it's possible that the no setup fees, and new datacenter opening had something to do with this.

Just waiting on the opening of the US/Canada datacenter now, and possibly move house so to speak regarding the server. Until then, for the price, the kimsufi can't be beat.

I have the Kimsufi 16g and the inbound speed is very good but the outbound speed is horrible. They are restricting and not being honest about it in my opinion. They just give you BS excuses and expect you to take them for there word. I have used OVH many times in the past with very good outbound speeds from resellers who must buy a lot of servers and get the promised bandwidth. I will use what I payed for then move to a better host for a dedicated server. Lesson learned. They will lose lots of business this way. Probably why they dropped the setup fees to bring more business in but they won't keep the business like this.
