iHosting Service Stuck in 2002 -- Lies, Empty Promises, Dishonesty
After discussions for a co-location service in Bangalore with i2k2 for 5U of rackspace, I racked my systems in end of December 2019. I had made abundantly clear to Manish Khurana and Rahul Aggarwal that I required a 1 Gbit/s uplink -- this has not been provided to date. Both Manish and Rahul repeatedly would say "Yes, 1 Gbit/s is available" whenever I asked. Only after issuing the first invoice and me withholding payment until the requirements were met did Rahul tell me over email that their switch/router at the NetMagic DC in Electronic City is incapable of 1 Gbit/s. I haven't heard anything this absurd in 2020, it may be the most absurd thing I'll hear this year if i2k2 doesn't come up with more garbage. They take a backwards-revolutionary approach to hosting, by telling their customers and clients what their requirements are -- they have told me in an email "we discussed and determined that you don't need 1 Gbit/s". This inversion of the client-provider relationship is truly a wonder to behold.
This hosting company will hold you back, this hosting company will frustrate you, this hosting company will lie, cheat, misrepresent, and deceive you. These people hold all of India back with their backwardness and thoroughly out-of-date infrastructure.
