I have to say though with linode, and to each their own I say, they are very
profession great support great community, as well getting a 1 million USD
upgrades.

So far new network infrastructure which has increase speeds by a factor of 5
and bandwidth by a factor of 10

I run 5 small servers, and for 20 USD which is about 16 euros a month I have
2tb of bandwidth per server now, and they also have 8 vcpus per server now
as well. And one more set of upgrades is on the way as well.

Linode is an US company, so it is subject to US law.
US privacy laws are not the best, even if you ignore that officially the
weak laws are routinely ignored.

I've researched hosters and jurisdictions, and 1984.is appeared to be one of
the best, included professed attitudes (e.g. see http://torproject.is/ ). 
You can contact Mörður Ingólfsson @ 1984.is to find out more.

If you only care about price and connectivity, then perhaps you should pick
somebody else.
