Leaseweb recently announced their Singapore VPS line.  

Article: https://www.leaseweb.com/press/releases/leaseweb-expands-global-iaas-footprint-with-new-cloud-platform-in-asia

Because of their new opening, they're giving out 50% off on all VPS plans in Singapore.  This effectively gets you a 1 GB RAM VPS with 1 core and 40 GB HDD with 4 TB BW (at 1 Gbit) in Singapore for 3.50 SGD, or 2.52 USD equivalent.  Or get an 8 Core, 8 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, 10 TB BW (1 Gbit) at 14.96 SGD, or 10.78 USD (Today rates).

Cool stuff!

Leaseweb's network in APAC isn't bad at all.  It's fairly reliable and works the way I want it to.  I mean right now it's not as up to par as some of the other networks such as Host.sg or Softlayer, but it's much better than that New Media Express blend.  

Source: I've had a dedicated server in Leaseweb's Singapore DC for a while now.  I also had one on New Media Express's network but that horsecrap was full of packet loss regularly during peak hours (this is from multiple points of monitoring).  I've been in Host.sg's network and I've got nothing to say besides pretty damn solid.  I spun up a VPS instance in Softlayer's Singapore location and it was also pretty good.  Honestly Leaseweb is probably the best in terms of the reliability + cost department.

I've met Alanwoo in the past. He offered me a slightly different pricing in SG location, a US$ 60 / MBps. Well I understood that bandwidth in SG is expensive though. But their business model that doesn't allow TUN/TAP would slightly a matter for anyone anyhow. What would you get for a 25 MBps Network? He will capped you off, for doing a 95th percentile above 25 MBps ;( (That's why he prohibit running any proxy/tun/tor and any other means of bandwidth hunger application (Normal price for a server comes only with a standard volume of 2 TB/mo or like said price per MBps).

The opposite fact (the good one) that I knew is he has a quality transit all over the place within APAC. He is member of several SG transit (SG doesn't have a single local peering, like LAX for Los Angeles, LIX for London, etc.). Most providers will have Equinix and/or SGIX in their transit, but Alanwoo does have 10 or more of them :D (including the King of Telco in SG, SingTel -which I heard has the most expensive transit all over the place)

PS: So sorry not to mention, Alanwoo is the owner of NewMediaExpress

They have a statement on WHT about this. I get much better ping & speed to my box now.
