VortexNode Review - Toronto KVM
Even though I've only had this VPS for a day, I've already many positive things to say about VortexNode's Toronto location.
The speeds in Canada are spectacular, and for me, I get latency rates of around 20ms.
Here's the specifications and network performance:

Even though I'm paying pennies a month, I still get support that responds within 15-30 minutes. Their support is great, and staff was cordial.
No comments on that so far, since I've only had this VPS for a day (ish).
I think it's a fantastic server, since I needed a server that was nearby to serve content to local users. The network is a bit finicky in the Asia regions, but eh, for the price I'm paying, it's well worth it.
