What an excellent share and comparison of what you had versus what you get now. It is a drastic improvement and I am sure you are feeling relieved as well as happy!
You've taken us through your moving experience and followed through with it, thank you for that. Your stand not to name providers is well respected as well, since the lessons learned are still very valuable.
The reality of the situation is that some companies don't know how to manage value proposition. We clearly have two completely different machines for pretty much the same price. The old provider could have done the technical upgrades (increase space or bandwidth or RAM), but they chose to sit on old tech offer while competition betters itself daily. We aren't even talking about support here. They lost purely based on hardware alone.
Thank you for sharing once again. I formatted your post slightly (made the words in bold type and underlined a couple other word) so that it is easier to read and see information. I did not delete or edited content in any way. I hope you don't mind.
