NATVPS, UK – Review of new NAT provider

NATVPS from UK offered 1 GB VPS NAT for testing – more RAM and disk space compared to base case for NAT. But was curious to check how it fared.I came to know about this offer from a post on LowEndSpirit blog. I tried to order the VPS, but faced an initial hiccup (code did not work).
