    Pricing for the following:

    What is the pricing per mbps for a T3 from AT&T?

    What is pricing on GigE's for:

    Level3
    UUNET
    QWest

    --------

    What are those 4 carriers going at currently?

    Im being told AT&T is $200+/mbps at even an oc3 commit - I cant believe that.

    Someone a lil more informed help me out please

    AT&T quoted me $3600/mo for 3 bonded T1's, and that included the line lease. of course that was to get it piped to my office for a WISP I was thinking of starting up.

    I dunno what they would be in a datacenter.

    Level3 will go to sub 50 on a Full gigE.
    UUNET is at 60~70 on a Full gigE, I'm assuming Qwest is about the same.
    ATT is at about ~80 on a Full gigE

    I'm just guessing this from the last time I chat with agent selling transit.

    Are you trying to price out what cybercon pays in St. Louis?

    These prices are fairly accurate. Slightly aggressive, but close enough.

    Yes, I am MFJP - I have a client I am trying to close a deal on, and I was looking for more approximate quotes.

    Thank You both- this confirms what I was thinking.

    What do you mean by "full gigE"?
    You mean 100Mbps commitment on a Gig line?
    Or a 1,000Mbps commitment?

    On a full Gig-E AT&T is about $80-$90. OC-3 pricing is about $150-$200.

    Level3 is Sub $50 on a Gig-E.

    Qwest is about $70.

    If you play your cards right you can get UUNet for about $50 on a Gig-E.

    So you're telling me that a full GigE at $80 per meg would cost $80,000 per month??

    What about a 100-200Mbps commit on GigE's?

    100 - 200 MB on which provider?

    At some location, UUNET would go for 50/meg --> Such as market post tower, but it's location specific.

    Yes, Full GigE at $80 per meg cost 80K a month.

    Here are my guess for 100Mbps
    Level3 - $125 Direct, $70~80 thru agents
    Qwest - $150 Direct
    ATT - $200 Direct
    UUNET - $180 Direct

    These pricing maybe on the high side, but it does cost more to go direct with the carriers. I'm assuming you just called up the carrier and ask for a pricing. If you even call up HE.net tomorrow and asked for 100mbps, I think they'll tell you it's 100/meg too. Of course, knowing someone makes a difference with these carriers.

    Mfjp - you seem to know some about St. Louis and Cybercon - is there any reason what so ever, that the carriers would be charging them a whole lot more than everyone else?

    I have a hard client who is arguing because he's believing what the owner of Cybercon is telling him about being charged - I frankly dont believe it because I know the prices and I know what can be worked out.

    Im trying to get him down from paying around $20k/month to about $12k or so but he cant believe that I can offer him such lower prices (In the same DC/same carriers)

    Ack - nevermind - the client thinking he knew everything was determined to tell me he is getting the lowest price out of every customer cybercon has at a low low rate of $200/mbps

    That coming from the owner of Cybercon ( which it did )

    I think theyre afraid of losing direct customers, eh?

    Considering I get the exact same thing he was getting at 75% less!

    I decided to stop trying to pitch to him and just layed it out for him - to bad he got offended and called me a scam artist once I told him what my cost was - then proceeded to hang up on me

    Mrdredd, you gotta understand there are many things that can be done to BGP to archive a lower cost per mbps.

    Lately, I have seen a company doing Internap incoming and GLBX outgoing.

    Dang... Maybe I should look into co-locating elsewhere than locally...

    I pay $0.50/kbps... a full meg dedicated line would be $500/mo

    $250 for 1/4 rack...


    But it is local, (minnesota) and they do have excellent support, and I have 24/7 physical access to the boxes.

    Chris,

    You had once contacted me using that alias, and I replied for identification (becuase it was not listed in your profile). I've not heard back from you?

    Though you get the benefit of handling the machines, I would most definately suggest doing colocation remotely. We had considered a more closer base for our operations, but could not justify spending 6-8 times more just for it being close.
