Nothing on the site I could see shows where the servers are located, and with them not offering only a miserly traffic allocation and promising decent speeds, you can be sure that its not in NZ, or it would be slow and only let you do a few gigs a month, just like internet in general.

Ew,

Icky French Servers!

The servers are located in France so that operator (http://www.anonyseedbox.com/) will not be affected at all.

Unfortunately, he is most likely using OVH (http://ovh.com/) as a server provider which means slow speeds for his New Zealand customers. OVH have terrible routing to many places outside of Europe including New Zealand.

Another thing to note is that OVH do not sell directly to New Zealand customers so he is likely using a proxy supplier or buying through a friend/acquaintance. This will mean any hardware issues with the servers will take longer to be resolved.

I did not know there was a seedbox reseller in New Zealand and in J. ville of all places, nice find!
