Oh man.  Thanks for this great review on prometeus/iperweb @!  Prometeus is actually where my ZNC is hosted on and currently it's uptime is 328 days.  They run one solid operation and I personally have tons of respect for them!  

In terms of this plan, I also have one and definitely continues with the low-end spirit!  Their network is fantastic especially when I was in South Korea (still great when I'm here in the States).  

I seriously have nothing bad to say about Prometeus.

Thanks for the review and the appreciation :)

This was my try at a low end plan. I couldn't find a way to make them profitable but since they were using low resources I though it was a way to give something to the let community, then IPv4 in the ripe zone reached the last /8 so it has to be stopped.

Anthony is now doing better with the low end spirit I hope :)

I'm still holding on to my 50cent VPS with Prometheus for dear life! Its probably somewhat of a collectors item now :)

I only really use it for a private VPN at the moment but its great.

Where in the world do I find this plan?  Awesome!!!!

If im not mistaken, they already don't sell this 50cents plan

only existing users who have it can continue renew

once expired without renew, they are gone for good

Would someone be so kind to post traceroutes out of the prometheus network to following locations?

Knock yourself out, that site is running on the 50 cent plan from uncle, and aside from the recent reboot because of the security issue, it's been rock solid.

Thanks for the review :)

These plans started with a joke, offered free. However, many people insisted to pay for them (since they missed the free offer) and became reality.

The IPv4 shortage meant an end to them since an IP sells now with minimum 1 Eur a month.

Right now we are totally out of OVZ, but, for friends, when there is some space, they are still available within reason and for a valid usage case.
