    Chicago Dedicated Servers/Colo - Quality Bandwidth!!! POLE

    I was just wondering what people thing of colo and dedicated servers in say Equinix in Chicago and bandwidth at $25-$40/mbit depending on the commit being 1-50mbit or so in the $40 range and so on with 90mbit being the line for $25/mbit? Whats your thoughts? Would you want Lease to Own Dell servers with it for say $50-$60/month extra?

    If there is enough interest yes we will be offering it at the $25-$40/mbit range at Equinix in Chicago. We are also in talks to bring in Peer1 at the same range hopefully to Equinix and have 2 tier-2 carriers that have over 700 peers combined...

    I would be very interested as I was planning on colo in Equinix one of these days (I'm about 4 minutes from the DC). And lease-to-own Dell servers?! I'd be so on that too.

    Do keep us updated please.

    Who is the other tier2 provider? You would have to buy at a very large commit to get a price lower than $40/mbit from Peer1 alone.

    How would you possibly offer your customers a price lower than your cost?

    They're going head to head with Cogent!, Dont' know if their transit provider is going to like that one.

    We are actually in negotiations with Peer1 and are working to get a good price within Chicago Equinix. We have also thought about getting nLayer as its realatively good bandwidth for a fairly cheap price.
