Hi. I've been pondering using a seedbox for quite a while and so I thought I'd finally start asking some questions! My main three main motivations (in this order) are (1) protecting my vulnerable little US IP address from sewage, (2) improving download speeds, and (3) improving my ratios.
Up until now, I've just been using Usenet and enjoy the security/speed that comes from using that, but its selection leaves something to be desired at times. Can a seedbox offer comparable safety to Usenet? I'm fairly familiar with installing/running software on Linux and running SSH terminals, so I'm guessing that should be an adequate level of knowledge for administrating a seedbox?
Finally, how is pricing? My needs are relatively small (if what I've been reading here is any indication of typical usage) and I doubt I would ever download more than 60GB of content in a month. I don't have a lot to shell out, but at the same time I'm not the kind of guy who will go through 50TB of bandwidth per month.
Thanks in advance!
