Tl;dr: you can upload your data, you will never retrieve it.
Hubic is an online storage service, by the well-known OVH company. In case you don’t know, OVH is a French datacenter, providing servers, co-location services, and even internet access in France.
Since Hubic is a service provided by OVH, you might think it is going to be a good service. Their prices are so promising. only 5€/ month for 10 TB
The bandwidth per user is officially limited to 10Mbit/s (1 MByte/s) . On top of that, you won’t even hit this number. Most of the time, the actual speed you will get will be about half of the promised speed.
I uploaded about 4 TB on their service during months, and It took me about 2 months to retrieve my data in order to migrate to another service. And I should mention, that I only retrieved most data, but I ended up abandoning a huge part of my data.
Also, I tried contacting their support several times, and they take a lot of time to respond. I contacted them a couple of times. The first time was by phone. I called OVH, and they simply told me that they do not provide support for Hubic, and I should contact Hubic directly, I also contacted them about the upload speed via twitter, they told me to send an email, and they din’t give a clear answer to my question on twitter.

They responded later to my email with the following:
Dear Mr Bassiouny,
We apologize for the response time.
On hubiC, the bandwidth is limited to 10Mega (1000ko/s upload/download)
It is normal that you can not exceed this limit.
I remain available in case of any questions.
Now you know what the service looks like. It’s usable,maybe as an extra backup, or for archiving purposes. After all, it took a lot of time, but I still managed to get the data I needed. So simply when you think of it,you just get what you pay for.
