i-83.net 60 Day Review
Plan: RBX-256 = 256mb Guaranteed RAM, 15GB HDD, 1 Core, 20 Ports on Shared NAT IPv4, 5 IPv6, 100mbs Unmetered Fair Share Port (DDoS Protected). $10/year via the March Madness Offer: http://lowendtalk.com/discussion/23634/march-madness-1year-only-6-unmetered-bw-ddos-protected-in-eu
I purchased this VPS so I could learn more about IPv6 and to see if I could get it to even work. I had intended to use this for testing only but I've been extremely happy with the service reliability and support so I decided to upgrade the ram to 512 and use it for a few projects. The 5 IPv6 work as they should but I can't figure out how to use the 20 port NAT IPv4, due to my ignorance, but it is available for me to use if I needed.
::As mentioned by @darkshire there is no tun/tap support on i83, so no openvpn::
Stability: Other than reboots issued by me the service has not gone down once and is currently at 49 days uptime. Both download and upload speeds exceed my expectations for the 100mb shared port. It's nice to find another LEB provider that I can depend on.
Support: After a couple of weeks I opened a ticket to see if I could pay an additional $10 for the year to double my ram, both George and Mike who handled the ticket were professional and prompt with response times of 2-3 hours. This was to the sales department marked Low priority. They have a simple, easy to read Acceptable Usage Policy and Terms of Service. They also offer CDN and DNS services. Their twitter is worth following for service announcements.

Also wanted to quickly recommend gogoCLIENT by gogo6 to those whose ISP does not support IPv6, the client made it easy for me to connect to IPv6. I will update this post if any major changes happen over time.
