    SO there i was , all excited to get a vps and use scrapebox at lightning speed.

    And was ensured that the vps would be amazing.

    so i set it up, and it was like using a computer from the 80's

    , laggy, choppy, not smooth at all.

    the support team tried their tricks but were unsuccesfull at making it run faster. I did a speed test and the download and upload speed were good, but the user experience was crap.....harumph:confused:

    gunna see if scrapebox runs faster, but now i have to wait 12 hours for my licence to activate....not a happy black hatter...

    How Much RAM and CPU did you get, we scale our VPS's according to RAM, for example VPS's with only 512mb or 1gb of RAM, only have 1 or 1/2 of a CPU core and generally we are not pleased with the speed which is why we push clients to get at least 2gb of RAM

    *EDIT*
    Based on my techs and myself having no speed problems at ALL with this VPS, I have to wonder/ask, what is your internet connection like. The choppyness you describe indicates a network issue, could you past your speedtest results to Dallas, Texas here, or send them to me in a PM?
