Does anyone have experiences with this ISP?
I'm specifically interested to know how's the network.
They have a child project - http://renter.ru cheap server in Moscow in DC nord3 (where mail.ru) and mne.ru Hosting
In principle, they have a normal network. But protection against DDoS attacks do not provide, block IP. At the prices you can find and cheaper, for example https://tehnodom.com (for ddos also block IP on 12 hour)
obzor.ly | hostsuki.pro | hosting.kitchen | alice2k.ru
Personally, I have not dealt with agava.ru however expect typical speeds within Russia. International speeds will depend on their peers such as Anders Telecom.
Their looking glass may help you to analysis routes: http://lg.agava.net/
There is also a speedtest file on renter.ru
If international traffic is important, I would suggest you consider the big four in Russia: Rostelecom - Optimal to EU/Asia (dominant ISP)
Transtelecom - Optimal to EU/Asia
Megafon - EU mainly
Beeline/Vimpelcom - Suitable for EU/domestic
KVM Virtual Servers in Oslo, Norway
@deployvm I hadn't seen the looking glass, thank you.
I am aware of the bigger ISPs, but am interested in Agava in particular for this task, since I need connectivity to be as closer as possible to their network. They look decent, so I'll give a try
