    Just read through the email properly, I recall incero said something about running x thousands of tests and the majority would see no real difference for what they currently paid. I suspect that even Descartes would struggle to balance that up with the current pricing/resource vs new pricing/resource. Ah, no powerboost but still.

    Must have missed the small print.

    It might be interesting given how some $8 clients get treated to see how a $4 one gets on, I await the threads entitled 'WTF Wable, a new low' in due course :)

    I don't see any mention of traffic allowances or associated upgrade costs. Maybe missed that but I got two emails and deleted one. One was a correction addressed 'Hello Gordon' which was slightly amusing (No my name is not Gordon).

    For a base package it seems pretty decent more especially in Dallas, but on a comparison with DO their $20 package will set you back $35 with wable, $40 in comparison to Linode. Beyond that the pricing appears a bit silly for what Wable is able to offer in my view, not that my view is worth much or cared for I will give you that. Of course you can spin up multiple $4 VPS but that is not always what you need.

    Ordering the 3 providers noted, my own preferences would put Wable last, on thinking about future upgrade needs I would remove them from the list.

    Not that I am tight arse but the control panel is still weak and on a matched quality/service point of view there are equal if not better providers for the high price point (especially using OVZ) once you start to upgrade a single VPS.

    Anyway had more but just a bit of musing whilst I waited on call, which has arrived. Probably just as well, the really contentious comments were still to come :P

    Nice, thanks.

    Looks like my 2 base VPS's (1CPU, 1GB RAM each) now are going to each cost me around $4.32 per month, which adds up to more than my bundle 3 costs now.
    The few cents more won't really matter, but I often ran additional temporary VPS's, and was thinking about setting up something additional for production, which is going to cost much more than I was paying.
    If someone was only using 1 VPS, they might save, but it looks like everyone else is looking at a price increase, so I'm not sure how many customers will actually be pleased, and the whole advantage of having a bundle with available resources at a set cost, along with the Powerboost option, which was what Wable really promoted, is now gone...

    Understood. However we're not targeting bundle 3 customers with the changes. We have many customers who are on bundle 10 and higher, who only needed more CPU or more disk or more RAM, those customers will now save money by not having to buy CPU, RAM, and Disk, they can just buy whichever resource they needed.

    We also have types of customers who need 100 VPS for 3 hours a month, these customers will now save dramatically, as they don't have to buy a bundle for a whole month.

    We also have customers who need a VPS 9-5 for a RDP, these customers can now save by using snapshots and deleting their VPS at the end of the day (API automation), this way the customer only pays for 8 hours of usage instead of 24 hours of usage each day.

    Overall, yes, we are no longer offering what was popular here on LET.

    I really can not express how much sad i am today.

    just 2 weeks back, after reading lot of reviews and thought process, i setup my bundle 3 with power boost

    and it took me a day to transfer everything from DO to wable.

    today when i check, my usage costs me around $70 from next month.

    i came here to save some $20+ but now i am forced to spend $50 extra every month.

    now, i need to spend 2-3 more days to read reviews and choose a new host and one day to move all (even if i decide to go back to DO)

    excellent usage of my time and its giving me great $ per hour :(

    Just responding here because the conversation happens to be on LET, but I already have dedicated servers with @Incero, and wouldn't consider myself an overall LowEnd (™?) customer.

    Just found Wable very handy for running my low powered Linux VPS's that were easier to deploy independently, without having to have and manage separate servers, and the cost made it very attractive as well, though I'm sure that there wasn't much money coming in from myself and the other users who were in similar situations.

    Just would (have) love(d) to see some sort of option to at least keep the bundle options for those that already have them and are using them (without abusing the bundle) and have been paying their bills on time, etc, so that those people don't lose out...

    I agree with you.

    Incero has every right to increase the price to whatever they want, as bills are paid monthly.
    But this sucks for a lot of their bundle 3 customers.

    To me the idea that this is all because of bundle 3 powerboost "abusers" is complete bull.

    If it was really so detrimental to them, why even to this day are they still selling bundle 3 half off and highlighted? (http://i.imgur.com/SjvQta7.png) Its even their pinned tweet. (http://i.imgur.com/JNPdUQ8.png)
    They were still pushing their powerboost at least in December. (http://i.imgur.com/8aKU3pn.png) Does anyone know if it was working more recently than that?

    There is really nothing stopping them from having powerboost not apply to bundle 3.
    Despite how bad the combination seems to be for them, they continued to offer it and plenty of Incero's posts are telling customers to buy bundle 3 and add powerboost. At one point at least they thought it was sustainable. (http://i.imgur.com/OIgAeDH.png)

    "This change will give customers the flexibility they have been demanding, and it will eliminate the massive amount of multiple bundle #3 abuse."
    http://i.imgur.com/oe8QAu6.png

    Funnily enough, I don't see anyone requesting hourly billing on their UserVoice page (https://wable.uservoice.com/forums/245224-general/filters/top). More importantly, one of the top requests is for an API. I don't believe in the slightest that Wable has so many clients with a need for hourly billing so they can deploy 100 VMs for 3 hours. Why would they buy a $600/m+ bundle instead of using AWS, DO, or any of the other cloud providers that are built to support this? And then sit there for so long manually spinning up VMs.

    I keep hearing of this split between LET being an insignificant portion of their business, and LET powerboosters being large enough to cause them issues with "abuse" of bundle 3. Of course abuse means owning bundle 3 and using the "dedicated" resources that come with it and continues to be sold.

    "We love bundle #3 customers, don't get me wrong. :-)"
    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/1116471/#Comment_1116471

    "Honestly, even without overselling we will make more profit on vps than we ever have with dedicated servers."
    https://www.lowendtalk.com/discussion/comment/528793/#Comment_528793

    I don't think that an hourly billing model is a bad move by them (assuming they get an API), and the prices aren't horrible (would be better if it wasn't openvz), but I don't believe their excuses for why they switched. I can only guess that they didn't get the userbase they had planned for and now need to abandon their sales tactic as they weren't getting the upsales that they needed to sustain them. Branding the people that bought their service as abusers ruining it for everyone else served to get the blind fans attacking anyone that disagrees with the decision.

    Yes, I have bundle 3 with powerboost. I'm not even using all of my resources, but my bill will be $22/m if I continue (I certainly won't be). When I got it, it wasn't because Incero was saying "buy this if you want Wable to fail", it was because it was a deal they offered. There are plenty of other hosts who under-price themselves to gain a customer base and they get crucified by this community, and taking advantage of their sale is seen as just, but with Wable that is reversed.

    How Gordon is able to get away with constantly abusing his customers, increasing prices on short notice, and the other numerous events that have cropped up over the years, and yet still maintain such a raging fan base honestly astounds me. He really knows how to play the LET game.

    The upgrade pricing for additional CPU seems a little steep though.

You can choose your clients, but when you terminate customers who are legitimately using the service, and don't even give time to retrieve data (from a previous case; user requested backup after arbitrary termination, but Wable refused), that's just unacceptable.

    Eh, can you be more specific about what speculation are you referring to? I went through my comment and honestly can't find any speculation at all :O

    So is NodePing a no-good abuser too?

    This is merely a rhetorical question, based on their history of labelling terminated clients as somehow undesirable.

    I hope no one still uses these kids for hosting.

    This is just a comment.

    You can choose your clients,

    More comments, not speculation.

    but when you terminate customers who are legitimately using the service, and don't even give time to retrieve data (from a previous case; user requested backup after arbitrary termination, but Wable refused),

    There have been multiple threads about this happening, and the provider in question has never contradicted the claims, so there's no reason to believe they are not true. Just two examples from a quick search:

    So it's still possible that the users are not telling the truth, but I think it's unfair to call this statement speculation since it's backed by a reasonable amount of evidence.

    that's just unacceptable.

    Another comment, not speculation.

    @perennate said: Hm, what is wrong with that? Having some customers who are not subscribed to important service announcements seems like it could be a big problem. For example there might be legal requirements to notifying customers about some kinds of things, and I imagine most customers would definitely want to receive a pricing change notification like this one.

    Or if that wasn't your point, then what was? (maybe you mean you already closed your Wable account?)

    I think it would be much more reasonable for it to say..

    "You received this email because you have an open Wable account. To unsubscribe to Wable service update emails, edit the settings in the client area."

    I don't see how that addresses my comment. Some announcements simply need to go to all active users on the platform. TBH I do not want to be able to opt out of important billing e-mails like the one in question here, without cancelling my account. And obviously some people might disagree with that, but I imagine there are legal problems, e.g. if terms of service says that all clients will be notified under so and so changes; not to mention problems where customer who opted out didn't know about the change and starts complaining when whatever updates take effect.

    To make an analogy, I don't believe WHMCS lets you opt out of service suspension/termination or invoice notification e-mails.

  • NekkiNekki Member

    So based on all the bants above, it looks like this change is aimed at big spenders who need hundreds of VMs at a time, for short periods, where the pay-per-usage model makes sense, particularly with the discounts being offered when you're spending decent chunks of change per month.

    The implication there is that Wable is simply tweaking(mutilating?) their offering to match the customer base they want, which is fair enough really - if it gets rid of the customers they no longer want, win for them I guess.

    Everyone should have seen this coming since Plan 1's demise...Incero dipped their toe in the LE* and didn't like it, for which you can hardly blame them, it's a weird place to be, especially when you're a host who's used to dealing with bigger customers, I imagine there was a lot of head scratching over why they even attempted the experiment after a few months of agg from LE* customers.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    Nekki said: I imagine there was a lot of head scratching over why they even attempted the experiment after a few months of agg from LE* customers.

    Doubt it. They got loads of customers which helped with ARIN allocations, hell they even formed 'Wablecom Incero LLC' for the IP requests.

    Now that ARIN isn't handing out IPs you know what the customers are worth. Their names and street addresses, that's what ARIN required in Phase 4. Now that they're worthless...

    Anyway it's a whole lot easier to sell VPS servers with 'PowerBoost!' and 'create all you want' to fill those Excel worksheets to get off to the ARIN analysts rather than bare metal.

    Now that ARIN's closed time to get rid of the customer base. I've known Incero to do some pretty low things, but terming @NodePing is a new low, literally purging customers.

    Just... low.

    @Kris covered off what I was intending to detail in my earlier post. A big IP grab is all it was. LET was just a pool of cheap hookers. Hence why they closed accounts so easily, it was their longer term intention.

    Fortunately I eventually decided against putting Wable to any serious use from a personal point of view due to doubts about future price increase . I do pay for other services which will be cancelled shortly once the team transfer it. Not a big loss to Incero, about $600 per year or thereabouts. It's my way of displaying discontent/distrust. And fortunately they cannot connect it to me and cancel beforehand :P

    I suspect this will hit them harder than they will ever admit.

    deadbeef said: Just curious - What stops a provider for making the names/addresses up? Does ARIN actually call a sample of the reported customers?

    No, but if you're audited or questioned more, they may want more than name and street address.

    Hell, last year we had someone on the west coast purchase RIJX for the customer's base, likely for names to shoot over to ARIN analysts, create a handful of companies to spread them across, while purchasing assets of failing companies, and swiftly got around 100k IPs from those nodes. I think he has a few cages at Psychz meanwhile?

    I've been watching a lot of companies on how they amass their IPs, but to dump the clients that got them a bounty of /24's is cold-blooded. I doubt they need all those IPs for bare-metal or are hurting right now with 60k+ IPs.

    Seemingly no reason to keep the customers now that their addresses and names are worthless. They have likely have gotten all their final requests in to ARIN and sit on a waiting list somewhere for more subnets when they come available for Wable via Wablecom Incero LLC.

    Anyone working at an ISP in the last two - five years can see how obvious it is. I just call it how I see it.

  • Is there any way to complain to ARIN, while letting them know that your address is no longer a client of Wablecom Incero LLC?

    I was a bit pissed off with their attitude when started automatically charging you for backups that you did not turn on yourself. But this last move has finally pushed me off their service, which I barely used anyway.

    Really poor business practice. I have made note of the owners' names, and will never buy or recommend any of their future business services. In fact, it is behaviour like this that makes you want make potential new customers, of any of their future business endeavours, aware of.

    I for one enjoyed Wable's services, for almost a whole year, since 6/22/2015... I know I'll find myself in a minority here, as I've seen lots of bad threads about Wable.

    Although I'm saddened to see them move in this direction, I can surely understand why this move was needed... I have/had (on their old billing plans) 5 VPSs totaling 5CPUs, 6GB RAM and 80GB SSD storage, for $8/month... that's not a business, that's charity.

    I am decommissioning these 5 VPSs with them as I'm typing this comment, since I will not be continuing with their new pricing plans, but I have no hate towards them for taking a step in this direction... it seems like a good business strategy on their part.

    Cheers.

    It was legitimate customer information at the time of the allocation, so there really isn't anything to complain about.

    I don't think so because i have many companies here offering similar prices

    ex: @impactvps offering 8cores, 8GB ram, 90GB SSD for $12 and you can have upto 8 VPSes.

    and you can have backups which are not charged extra.

    I have seen even more cheaper ones too here.

    before spending time here, i know wable is the cheapest option but now i don't think so.

    I am waiting to see some competitive pricing on KVM bundles instead of openvz =(

  • OK. Bumping this thread because I finally got wabled(TM) too.

    I raised a support ticket because I was curious if keeping my wable account after June 1st, for when I NEEDED it, was supported.
    So, I asked a straightforward question.

        Subject: deleted all vps and snapshots. Bill $0 tomorrow? [i201,b3]

        So I went ahead and deleted ALL vps and snapshots.
        I was only using them for dev boxes.
    
        Do I HAVE to close my account to ensure I am not billed more than $0 tomorrow?
    

    And this is the response I get:

    Thanks, I've banned your account now that you've deleted all VPS, this will stop billing for you.
    
    Best Regards,
    Jeff

    Can't really tell if they are just that ignorant now or just plain huffy that you cancelled.
