I am looking to start a web hosting business and was considering co-locating. I've seen posts about bandwidth before. With most colo programs you can receive 50 mb/mo bandwidth. If I am reselling accounts what are the potential uses of bandwidth. I know it can vary greatly, but is there any stats on what the average site uses (say for a 25 meg, 100, or 500 meg site). I want to offer the above sized accounts. What would be reasonable bandwidth. I figured anywhere from 1-5 gigs from the 25-500 megs of space.
What have others run into when hosting from a colo or dedicated server. Is bandwidth a huge problem or do most accounts use very minimal? Just looking for guidance.
