Is there any more precise ETA for re-opening Spaces registration in AMS3?

I was wondering if it’s possible to get any more specific ETA on when the AMS3 data center expansion is supposed to be finished, and thus when the Spaces registration in that region is supposed to be re-opened again.

(It’s totally fine if the date gets postponed due to unforeseen circumstances, but it would still be nice to know so I can plan which weekend I could possibly deploy my upcoming project – which is currently blocked by the inability to create Space in AMS3 :))

Thank you!

    Technically, there are at least two ways that I found that allow you to create Space in the AMS3 region even currently. But since DigitalOcean clearly doesn’t want users to create Spaces in that region, I won’t share those.

    I already migrated all of my resources out of DigitalOcean due to finding better pricing elsewhere :)

I had the same question and mailed support a while back in Oktober 2019 and got this answer:

Really sorry for the issue! We don’t have any confined date as such as of now for Spaces usage in AMS3 region. Sorry for the inconvenience caused. Request you to please refer to below link:
