    It has 200 days retention and a speed cap of 1 Megabit/sec $6/mo is a fair deal

    I e-mailed them, haven't heard back from them.
    You get 4 connections, each one is limited to 1Mbit/s. So the maximum you'll be able to reach on that account would be 4Mbit/s.

    I tried it last week during their free testing week. SSL did not work at all and the service seemed to be frequently down.

    Well, you can't expect a test server to be reliable. The free server was given out so that people could use it and help cheapnews check the stability, how much it can handle and other things, so that when they start selling access to it there will be no problems. They mentioned it would be down quite a bit, this would be because they would have to change settings/configuration alot to get it working properly.

    I used it myself last week without any problems at all. Great speed too.

    But I will stick with astraweb as they have better retention
