100 Mbps Unmetered

Nov 27, 2008

if anyone can suggest a couple reputable companies based in Canada, that offer a dedicated server with 100 mbps unmetered bandwidth. Budget is ideally around 1500.

(I posted a while back about 60TB/month, and got some great replies, that was a different project)

10 Mbps, 100 Mbps, Unmetered

Apr 30, 2009

A lot of dedicated servers offer options of 10 mbps or 100 mbps link.

What does that really mean?

Does it mean I get the 100mbps connection all to myself so I can send out data at 100mbps? Or am I sharing that 100mbps link with others but I could burs to 100mbps on occasions?

Also some advertise "unmetered" 10 or 100 mbps. Again does that mean anything?

What about "dedicated" 10 /100 mbps? How is that different?

How Much Bandwidth Do You Get On A Unmetered 10 Mbps- 3 Teras

Aug 7, 2008

i finally ordered my first dedicated server -previously i had a vps. I ordered at theplanet.com an unmetered 10 mbps - dedicated server but i am now confused, about how much bandwidth 10 mbps really represent?

10 mbps = 3.300 gigas?
20 mbps = means how many gigas?
and the 100 mbps = means how many gigas?

I have a alexa 12.000 site with adult videos that is getting more and more traffic, thats why i decided to get unmetered but stupidly i thought 10 mbps was a lot of more than only 3.3 teras : ( so 20 and 100 mbps means how many gigas?

I am going to pay at ThePlanet for this 10 mbps unmetered connection $200 plus $ 109 for the server pentium 4 512 ram.

VPS Speed - 100 Mbps Promised - Getting 10 Mbps

Nov 8, 2008

I got a Linux VPS from a hosting company, highly rated for their support on this forum. During the pre-sales, I asked what type of connection speed is provided on the VPS, and I was told 100 Mbps. That was a month ago.

To reconfirm, I just asked again from a live sales guy about connection speed and he suggested same 100 Mbps.

This time, however the answer was not "direct":
Please wait for a site operator to respond.
You are now chatting with 'xxxxx'
xxxxx: Hello, my name is xxxxx. Thank you for contacting yyyyy yyy! To whom am I speaking with and how may I assist you?
you: Hi Quick question about the VPS
you: what is the connection speed on the VPS servers
xxxxx: The VPS have 100Mbps NICs. So upto 100Mbps
you: great - thanks.
you: have a good day
xxxxx: You too. Thanks
I am pretty sure the original sales rep did not qualify this "upto 100 Mbps".

I have created a support ticket, but I am expecting them to respond that "100 Mbps is shared on VPS, and that's why you may not be seeing that".

I will wait for the response, but am mad that I am only seeing 10 Mbps.

Is this type of sales practice normal for VPS sellers with good reputation on this board?

10/100 MBPS

May 27, 2009

which should I get and would I notice anything at all in terms of speed?

my server may have reasonable traffic every month. I mean, it will be used for FTP but also for hosting exchange and also a couple of websites. Sure, I know best practice is to seperate exchange etc... etc... but for some reasons I cannot do this at all.

so will i really notice any difference if I get 100MBPS and if so, how much?

HE V6+v4+asn $5/mbps

Sep 7, 2007

I'm not a HE representative in anyway, that's why this isn't at the offer forum, but it seems HE is wanting to increase the number of ASNs that advertise v6 address space through them.

This offer is limited to a single gigE, you won't buy more at that price

"Specials Run BGP+IPv6+IPv4 and get $5/Mbps!"

I'm quoting a representative:


IPv6 and IPv4 Full Gige AS Special (1000 Mbps) $5,000/month, no setup fee (For customers with their own AS and *both* IPv4 and IPv6 address space.

In order to get this special rate they must configure and run IPv6 BGP over the connection.)

Customer must run IPv6 and announce their own IPv6 address space to Hurricane via BGP to get this pricing, otherwise the price for the Gigabit Ethernet port is $(sic)/month.

In order to take advantage of the AS special, the customer must have already had their AS number for at least 3 months prior to when they order.

This means that if they don't already have an AS number they can't qualify by getting one just to take advantage of our special.

This is only valid at some of our locations.

but this is just info not an offer so I won't name the representative in anyway.

I don't know which are the locations,

How Many GB Is 2 Mbps

May 22, 2007

I have contacted a data center about colocating a server and I am lost on the data conversion. I want to reproduce a website that is pushing 1500gb per month. The problem is I dont understand bandwidth that well. How many real world gb is a 2mbps connection.

And how many mbps would it take to get to 1500gb per month? They want to sell me 1000gb for $50 (yes its a budget host) and charge $0.50 per GB over. Which would be like $250 so I would be paying $300 a month total. Which is not a good deal in my book.

I know 2mbps is not going to add up to 1000gb transfer I am just trying to get a idea.

When most providers sell you bandwidth for 1000GB, then it is usually 500 in / 500 out.

When providers sell 1MBPS then that averages out to 324GB.

When a provider charges by the MBPS is that totaling both the in and out together?

Per Mbps Pricing

Oct 31, 2007

I am working with one of the new DCs that we deal with to negotiate some colo pricing and setups. They are not huge on colo, in fact they do very little of it. Hard to believe out of about 1200 servers in their DC, their colo section will not even fill 2 to 3 racks.

They do not even have a setup to price based on per Mbps, I'm sure they know about where they need to be if they dig into it, but they want me to work up a proposal based on what I need (they are working hard to work with me and keep our business).

Their network is fine, nothing outstanding but plenty strong for our needs.

They use mostly Time Warner and Level 3. I think I can even setup with them to provide my own rack, which I prefer to do since it would keep only our servers in the rack.

My question is, from those who have plenty experience on different levels at different Mbps pricing, what is average and reasonable considering those 2 carriers? If I provide a rack, they will provide power, UPS, etc. Aside from that, I need advice on what to expect on the pricing of the bandwidth.

I may also end up using my own Cisco switch in the rack, I haven't cleared that up yet.
If I start off @ 10 Mbps in the rack, and work up, about where should this be on BW pricing?

Figuring Mbps

Jan 28, 2007

I am on a dedicated server right now and I am getting ready to go colo. I will like to know what I am using now for Mbps. Is there a program I can install on my dedicated server now that will measure this for me and let me know? I want to know what plan I need to purchase at my colo site.

3 Mbps Dedicated Bandwidth

May 28, 2008

I've been looking around for hosts with atleast 3mbps dedicated uplink. A shared port but with still a decently fast connection would be good too(incase you tried hosting there and the connection was good than tell me about it).

I tried netrackservers.com so far and they claimed to have 100mbps connection or something like that but it was extremely slow.

How Much Should Mbps Bandwidth Cost?

May 12, 2008

I run a small cluster (5+) of servers and would like to move them behind a dedicated switch with my own dedicated bandwidth. I expect my bandwidth usage to be around 20 Mbps, measured at 95 percentile (greater of incoming or outgoing bandwidth). I have been quoted a price by my supplier but finding it rather high I wanted to ask users here what should be an average/reasonable cost for 1 mbps, assuming the servers are managed, the bandwidth is multi-tiered and the service is good.

100 Mbps Switch Solution

Jun 24, 2008

I have a dedicated server with Dual Xeon, 2 GB RAM, SATA Raid 0 and 10 mpbs port. When i checked from WHM i see, my RAM is never more than 20% used. I have a forum (phpBB) and few blogs which gets somewhere around 30,000 visits per day (forum + blog total visitors).

Now the problem is sometimes my site takes pretty much time to load despite memory load is not more than 20%?

Now if i add another site with even 1000 visits per day, the other sites seems to be highly affected.

Will my site performance improve if i upgraded to 100mbps port?

Where To Buy Unutilized Bandwidth (500 Mbps+)

Jan 22, 2007

to put online some file servers that will handle a lot of downloads. These file servers are non mission critical and the network design allows for significant amounts of scheduled downtime.

Large hosting companies normally pay for their bandwidth based on peak usage or 95th percentile. In both cases there are many hours everyday where they are paying for much more capacity than they are using. Another way of looking at is that using additional bandwidth, during these specific off-peak hours, would result in an additional cost close to zero.

I'd like to buy this off-peak only bandwidth at low prices. I'm looking for about 150,000 GB/month but I will consider offers for smaller and larger numbers.

How Much Is 100 Mbps - 95th Percentile Bandwidth

Jan 1, 2009

100mbps can be rather vague at first so I will now try breaking 100mbps, - my question will be near the bottom.

Ive used a conversion calculator to draw this up.

8192 Mbit (Megabits) = 1 GB (GigaByte)
100 Mb (Megabits) = 0.01220703125 (GigaBytes)
So, to reach 1 GB it will take just under 1 min 22 seconds at a rate of 100mbps.
8192 Mbit / 100 Mbit = 81.92 seconds which is 1 min 21.92 seconds.
1 min 21.92 seconds = 1 GB.

My question:

As i am more familiar dealing with Gb's more so than Mbits i have a few questions which i am not so sure about .....

How To Verify 100 MBPS Uplink Speed

Aug 14, 2007

I recently purchased a new Dedi server, and got 100 MBPS Uplink. Now, I'm uploading 16GB size of files into this server, and I have a suspicious feeling that this upload speed is not what they told me. For the very 1st day, I opened a ticket and they said that they upgraded it to 100 mbps. I saw this speed was faster immediately. On 2nd day, it went down to around same slow speed before. Since then, I kept opening a new ticket and they said it was done, or sometimes I am under DDos attack..? What? I don't even have the site up yet! How come there is DDos attack?

Anyway, today I was told that I'm getting billed for this 100 mbps uplink, because it's a new service. What a crazy thing going on here... I am so tired of this ticket game and just don't understand why they don't commit what they told me initially.

Can anyone please tell me how I can verify and prove that I am having this 100 MBPS Uplink speed? The only thing I can tell with my eyes is that I can see those FTP upload progress bar. When it's very fast to upload one file, I assume that I have right speed.

But is there any tool or command that I can execute on the server shell, and tell them what I get as a proof?

I have checked through vSphere and I dont see any VM consuming that much, it only show that the host is using that much.

1 Mbps Dedicated Line Do You Get The Full 1024 Kbps

May 21, 2007

I have a client who subscribed for a 1 Mbps dedicated line, he is getting about 900Kbps max, he insist that the datacentre is cheating on him. Datacentre reply

The bandwidth test is done remotely, which bounds to have lost of bandwidth in internet traffic to the remote site including the download test probable taking off about 100Kbps. 1mb bandwidth is base on IDC to POP

Is it reasonable to expect exactly 1024 kbps? Whats the loss to be estimated for overheads?

1U Colo, 1 Mbps, 1 Amp Power In Major China Cities

Jun 11, 2007

1U colo, 1 mbps, 1 amp power in major China cities

Must have premium, mulit-homed bandwidth, with great connectivity to the US
Must have local cable TV cross-connect via coax, s-video, etc.

Prefer remote reboot

Some or all of the following:
Shanghai, Beijing, Chongqing, Tianjin, Wuhan, Harbin, Shengyang , Guangzhou

OK to have colo and cctv cross-connect in one or more cities - you dont have to do them all.

We do NOT need colo without the cctv availability.

Will need a /30 address space.

VPS + Unmetered

Jun 20, 2007

I am trying to have vps because I have 130 websites in shared server.

My current reseller account has WHM/Cpanel, WHMReseller installed. - no ssh access

I think need VPS + Unmetered shared reseller(currently have one) for 2 reaseons.
1. backup/restore
2. Disk space

1. backup/restore =======================
I had a problem with hosting company, so I had to move all 130 websites in 12 hours without ssh access in both old/new server. (can you imagine?)
New server admin helped me, but their response were so late, so I want to do it my self.
Also, I need one more server that can immediately be switched if hosting company blowup everything. (hosting will be my life line)

2. Disk space =========================
All 130 websites are smaill size cloned websites (1mb~20mb) because I sell cloned websites with hosting.
I have unmetered space/bandwidth reseller plan now, so I can provide 5bg-10gb space for each customer. (they use only 1-20mb though)
If I have vps(15-30GB plan), I won't have enough space if, some clients really use 5GB space. So I may move clients who use big space to my unmetered shared reseller account.(currently have one)
In other words,
vps- many small sized websites
unmetered - big sized websites (a few)

I may need only one vps, but it's too much overselling if I give 5GB to each client. (that's why I have to connect vps to my current hosting).
Am I wrong?

I have no idea how to make this concept works.

I see many ebay sellers who sell unmetered hosting, and they have 2-5 datacenters and backup servers....etc.

Also, how can people generage a bunch of ips? Is it one of the function in vps?

Last question- Does it back up all sub-account if I do full backup reseller's cpanel?

Unmetered Bandwidth

Oct 30, 2009

I was looking at a VPS plan that offered unmetered bandwidth on a shared 100mbit/s port. I thought it was a bit suspicious because it was at a very low price--but would this be what it means?

100mbit/s converts to 0.125 megabytes per second
= 7.5mb/min
= 450mb/hour
= 10,800mb/day
~ 334,800mb/month
= 334.8gb/month

Would that mean that I would be getting less than 334.8gb of bandwidth a month, but it's just filtered through to make sure I don't go over?

100MBIT Unmetered At FDC

what kind of incoming and outgoing bandwidth should i be able to consume from FDC?

Im getting about 60KB down and 500KB up.

further since i havent been able to hold the number of radio slots I used to I feel like something is not right, i seem to get normal ping and traceroute but noticed that an mtr router displays some sort of odd results, am I reading this correctly?

seems like there is always a couple of hosts with a ton of packet loss. how can i tell if there is some kind of problem here? the server worked great for 6 mos and now it just seems like it never has come back .......

USA Unmetered Server

May 24, 2008

I've currently got around 10 dedicated servers for the MMORPG we run, 3 of which act as patch distribution servers / download servers.

The patch distribution servers are fairly low spec (Single CPU, 1-2GB RAM, 250GB HDD), but connect through a 100MB unmetered port - all of these are currently in the EU.

I'm now looking at a USA patch server, but not sure where to look. The only provider that springs to mind is FDC Servers but not sure how good they are these days. I don't mind if the provider is on the East or West coast (or even Central), but they must provide 100MBps unmetered (shared is fine).

Currently paying around $100-$200 for each other patch server, so would ask that $200-250 is the limit.

Unmetered Vs. Metered

Mar 8, 2008

Someone mentioned corenetworks.net in one of the posts, so I went to look at them, then checking out the options, it got me thinking about this, what is the difference/what does it mean?

Unmetered Bandwidth Options vs. Metered Bandwidth Options?

Unmetered 3Mbps/month +$0.00

Metered 1,000GB/month +$0.00

So, are they saying that I can get 3Mbps 24/7 for an entire month for no extra, or 1,000GB total transer at? Mbps (I would assume 10Mbps or 100Mbps depending on the setting.)?

Ok, so I am trying to answer my own question...

Let me just ask it. What's the difference?

They have an Unmetered @ 10Mbps for $350.00/month, but come on... Is it "really" unmetered? (Just like those shared "unlimited transfer" type accounts, where they hack you off at the knees when you go past their invisible "unlimited" number.
