I have a machine in Germany with Hetzner. From my home connection I
get a ping of about 77, but I've seen this drop to about 55 and go up
to 85 depending on the ISP.
Transfer rates depend on the time of day but I haven't seen it go past
2.1Mb/sec per connection. During peak times it's slowed to about a
third of that but I'm guessing that's my ISP or possible a bottleneck
between here and there. For the average web/ssh&vim stuff it seems to
be more than sufficient. I've used it for personal stuff and for a
website that gets about 80k hits per day without a problem.
I admit that I can speak german, but I've not needed it - it was hand
for reading the web-based control panel for being able to do hardware
resets while testing, or booting into rescue mode, but it's rather
trivial to do that without the language too.
