Are all US psychz locations equal or are some better than others?

Hi

I'm considering psychz for a future project and wonder if all locations are equal? My question is mostly focused on network but other stuff that has to be taken into account is interesting as well.

Are all US locations similar network wise or do some of them suffer of a poorer network than others?
i.e is there any US location that is specifically good, is there some of them that should be avoided at all cost?

What about their EU and BR locations? Is the network good there?

Thanks a lot!

    no network is equal, definitely wouldn't compare a brazil network to a us network.. compare some OVH locations for example.

    Nope, the internet hosting industry does not work like McD, where you get the same burger everywhere. Even if their US locations are pretty similar to each other, you surely have to take into account different situations in places like BR, ZA or the like.

    @MikeA: Sure, I was more thinking of the comparison between their US locations, and curious about their location in BR and NL, even though I understand that it can't be compared directly to their offering in the US.

    @OhJohn: I know, that's why I asked this question. Maybe it wasn't clear enough, I'll edit the OP. My question could be: If one had to choose between one of their locations, which one would be the best (stable network, good connectivity to most places)?

    Your network seems good, unfortunately my question was about Psychz. I know about latency and stuff like that, my question wasn't related to general location/latency stuff but specific to Psychz"s DCs.

    For example, from limited testing using their test IPs I can see that some locations have more packet losses than others to several places. Of course this could be temporary, but this made me wonder if there were some known problematic locations to avoid.

    Cheers!

    They do differ from location to location, but are trouble-free now in all US and in Brazil. Have not tried other locations, but would vouch for them for these.

    Dallas is still best of theirs i think.

    We use ALL of their US locations, and can highly recommend them. Service has been pretty rock solid for us over the years.

    No clue what Takumi86 is talking about. I have absolutely no problem maxing out a 1 gig port in both Dallas and LA with Psychz.
