id go with the E5 cpu but idk how bandwith is with online.net
i like soyoustart but they are not super fast with upload 30MB/s max avg 20MB/s

I can’t say anything about online.net but I have used SYS for a few months now and am very pleased. I run my seedbox and Plex through it with no problems at all. Just be aware they are a little slow on the support side though

I myself use SYS as I am heavy on streaming media and SYS Canada tends to offer up a better solution for my needs. For this reason either of these choices will be purely subjective to user needs. SYS will provide you a few things that are a bit better in terms of basic comparisons.

  1. Setup fees are not outrageous
  2. Storage options and/or hardware (even an E3) can be higher rated (You may even get lucky and order that E3 but get an E5 delivered instead… this is random though)
  3. Streaming higher media types and larger file sizes is slightly better to America… US in particular.

However, Online.net is nothing to lol at. You may typically have to pay some crazy setup fee and also have to accept their terms in regards to cancellation (before the 20th of the month or you’re stuck with it for another month)… but… they do offer a higher bandwidth.

If you are not requiring a lot of space and 1TB is sufficient for your needs, and are also not needing to stream 1080p to the US; I would hop on those SSD in RAID 0… no way would you regret that choice… unless you find yourself needing more space.
