Host Virtual ( has a location in India. I've had occasional
issues with them like sometimes the host server becomes i/o starved and
blocks for a minute or network connectivity randomly becomes lossy.
Nothing devastating, just a nuisance when it pages since I use it for
external telemetry. I just kind of let it slide most of the time though
because it's cheap.
