I've had bad experiences with 1&1 UK on a dedicated server with tones of problems on it. And the connection. And they weren't very helpful with the problem in fact they charged me for nothing.

I know someone that worked for 1&1 support and he said they where getting better so it might be worth it. Alternatively the USA branch maybe a lot better.

LOL that URL above with .co.uk in it reveals that they charge £49 per month and the US charge $49 that a huge price difference.

I don't tend to use servers in the US tbh but I do use 34sp.com in the UK for a dedicated server.

Ps. although I must sound like it now I don't complain at everything there are some very good services and hardware about.
