@jrasanen DigitalOcean doesn't actually enforce their BW cap right now. Things I'd like to see: virtualization type (if applicable) -- OpenVZ vs. KVM vs. etc. CPU speed, HDD/SSD IO. Based on my testing so far LightSail performanced terribly on CPU and SSD speeds.

Nice recap, thanks!
I see there are some dedicated too, if so OVH has plenty of other very cheap options sold through their sub-brands:

you can use https://github.com/Crowd9/Benchmark or https://serverscope.io/ to benchmark your servers (i've never used the latter though).

it's a shame serverbear.com was shut down a few months ago :'(

Can arubacloud.com be added? At the moment they provide VPS starting from 1 Euro (likely marketing). Nevertheless the company is pretty old, at least in terms of presence as web hosting provider.

OVH offers unlimited traffic on their VPS options. https://www.ovh.com/us/vps/vps-ssd.xml lists "Bandwidth - 100 Mbps - Unlimited traffic" Right now you have it as "10TB" in the table.

E: While other sources do say that speed does drop after the 10TB mark, that is different from a "real" cap. Perhaps attach an asterisk?

@queer: All of the listed providers offer "unlimited traffic", but I list the traffic you get at the advertised speed, as the speed after the traffic limit is heavily throttled, and differs from day to day even at many of them.

Hey @justjanne! Thanks for compiling all this in one place. I just wanted to let you know about some big updates we've made to our plans over at DigitalOcean. You can check out all the details here: https://blog.digitalocean.com/new-droplet-plans/

@justjanne Thoughts on moving this into a repo instead of just a Gist? If you did, then people could submit pull requests 😄

@jpinnix: I’ve thought about that, but as all the links lead here, that’d be suboptimal. Luckily, gist is just backed by a git repo anyway, so if you fork it, I can merge your commits back into here.

Also which is your choice?

I forked it to make an update to serveral plans and add the $160/m section, and realized I can't make a pull request for a Gist, so I have made my changes available as an Awesome list in a normal github repository: https://github.com/leogallego/awesome-vps-price-breakdown

Everyone is welcome to fork and submit pull requests to keep the list updated. I made the proper attributions at the footer of the repository.

I made a website that compares different VPS hosting,

also you can filter by storage/ram/CPU

and sort by pricing

Check it here
