Wrong or right? Bandwidth fraud, Russian provider towwwer.host, your opinion?

A new provider from Russia offers a package of 50 rubles. According to the page description, its bandwidth is 1Gbps!

Fraud by Russian provider towwwer.host

But when you buy, you will find that its bandwidth is only 10Mbps. This is not due to network congestion, but the provider has set the maximum speed to 1220kib/sec

Another point, in all purchases of this package, not all have this limit set, some of them do not have this limit

In response, the merchant replied that it is obvious to set the minimum speed for the minimum package

Regarding this statement, when posting this post, in order to find any instructions on their website

However, according to this isp system, it is obvious that this is not the lowest speed but the highest speed

What do you think of this behavior?

In order to attract buyers to label large bandwidth, the provider actually limits the bandwidth to 1%. Is it correct? Or is it wrong?

  • In addition, for the test VPS provided by this provider, they are 1Gbps

  • Seriously? do you get at least something for this money?) and thanks for that!

    You expect 1Gbps unmetered for $0.60/m?

    They do not limit the test VPS provided to the website

    This is intentional behavior

    Money not important, 50 rubles can only take the metro once in St. petersburg
    upset about this type of fraud,I am curious about what the provider will do next
    post articles, for this kind of intentional behavior, I am happy to do SEO for them

    In my opinion, the provider can mark 1Gbps and distribute it to 100000+ users

    But it cannot indicate 1Gbps but secretly limits 10Mbps

    I can't find that offer. The cheapest I find is 145 rubles/mo. As for a test server their FAQ clearly states that they do not offer .test servers.
    Re the 10 Gb/s and unlimited traffic, that's a marketing trick I've seen often, e.g. on blade based nodes where the whole system (with e.g. 14 blades) has a 10 Gb/s connection but they create the impression that every VPS is 10 Gb/s connected. That's sad and ugly but at least in quite a few countries not criminal.

    Plus, @hzr nailed it well.

    Thanks no.

  • Maybe they meant the node speed is 1Gb/s, because unmetered bandwidth with that speed for 0.7$ :) that's not possible.

  • 50 RUR is 0.56 EUR. For 512 MB RAM... The hell with that Gbps port. I'll take it with 10Mbps! Thank you.

  • IMO, whatever the pricing is (even if it's free), they should clarify that they are limiting to 10Mbps, especially since they wrote 1Gbps on the product page

    In this regard, my understanding is that this node is connected to 1Gbps of bandwidth. As for how much VPS is allocated for this 1Gbps bandwidth, this is not the point. I have explained that it can even be allocated to 100000+vps, but it is in the system Limit the speed to 10Mbps, which is contrary to 1Gbps, they should indicate 10Mbps

  • Update on the incident

    In order to prevent more people from discovering that they secretly limit bandwidth

    This provider has hidden the bandwidth limit information on the panel

  • I don't get why people on LET say, its only 50 cents, what did you expect. If a company advertises something, and they don't provide what they advertise, that is a problem. It doesn't matter what the price is. Lying is lying.

  • 10Mpbs, isnt this the speed of oracle free tier?
    Oracle giving 2 compute vm for free @10Mbps, why spend a dime for this?

    Are you a dumb or acting like one on purpose? OP is saying the provider is engaging in false advertising, not fucking about the price or asks for your opinion on it.

    Yes, i don't understand

    Let us suppose

    Let us suppose a very beautiful woman, at night, she dressed very beautifully, on the way home, he was raped by a bad guy

    Should we blame this woman for being too beautiful?

    For those who say "50 rubles, what to expect", I hope they can assume this woman as their own mother, and then think about this question

    The fuck???
    Did you just compare a 50 cent VPS to a woman being raped?

    You need to calm your titties.

    Thanked by 1TimboJones
  • Indeed, the comparison with rape is way off.

    However, opening post is correct, not because of 50 rubles VPS, but because it's fake advertising, intended misinformation, and lies. Such dishonest provider can never be trusted.

    And now this is conspiracy to defraud. Let's dig deeper.

    1. No visible contacts of company. A sign to think twice before order;
    2. Domain registered: 2020-05-06;
    3. Fraudulent intentions confirmed in another Russian review(?) forum https://poiskvps.ru/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=860 (there is english bits);
    4. Price is less than 0.60USD -- that is 2 to 5 times cheaper than IP address alone, not to mention other resources;
    5. Misleading advertisement masking to evade confrontation with non-comfortable facts (a.k.a the Trump move);

    Let's make some _ASS_umptions:

    • Very likely to be a classic "hit&run" schema;
    • Credentials harvesting (if you entered credit card details - GG);

    I might be to dramatic, paranoid or plain and simple stupid, who knows, but I would better host my ISO's with cociu than this, thought price point is mouth watering.

    Maybe this assumption is incorrect, I just want to remind some people that we should solve the most fundamental problem

    The provider will provide the marked 1Gbps bandwidth to 100000 VPS

    Or Provides a trademark that 1Gbps bandwidth is secretly limited to 10Mbps

    These are two different things. For the previous situation, I can accept it, I think it’s just unknown

    For the latter case, this is fraud

    Our problem is that this provider practices fraud

    Instead of "50 rubles, what do you expect"

    50Mbps for Oracle, but funny you should mention that, since the Oracle limit is "0.48 Gbps". I haven't bothered to contact Oracle to ask wtf, I already think they're incompetent.
