Updated Review

I feel like I have to row back a bit and give kudos to Contabo for what its worth. After talking to a Contabo Rep on the phone regarding my issues and concerns the problem which was most annoying to me (the limited SSD speed) has been fixed and is working quite good right now.
That being said I need to say it is good to know that Contabo is willing to talk things through and act when needed. Coincidence or triggered by my reviews? Even if the latter applies, from a Salesman POV customers who do complain and acctually talk about their problems are always getting treated accordingly. This does not only apply to Contabo but probably any company out there.

This experience is about (although I doubt is any different)

Hello everyone,
I've recently tried out Contabo and am quite happy now despite being off to a rough start hehe :P The phone support is really nice so I recommend you to contact them with any issues you face. Helped me out promptly.
