    Hey guys,

    My family has high speed with Comcast. I did a couple of internet speed tests and generally, this is our internet speed:

    Download: Between 16 and 21 Mbps
    Upload: Between 1.5 and 2 Mbps

    So my parents have been complaining that the internet is slow, which is due to me using Scrapebox. I explained to them, and they are considering upgrading our internet.

    Do you think we should go ahead and do that, or should I just pay for a VPS to use Scrapebox on?

    Go big or stay home...pun intended.
    Having a VPS has a lot of benefits, though I'm guessing you won't be running a linux server, otherwise you can make your own web server, proxy, you name it.

    Thank you. Any recommendations for a VPS? Mostly Scrapebox, and possibly SeNuke later on.

    Go VPS:

    Bandwidth will be faster
    Lower latency
    You don't pay power
    No fire hazard from running another PC 24/7
    More of a buffer between you and the spam complaints
    Your parents will stop whining
