Thanks for all the information, and yes i wanted to pay on a yearly basis, but i still do have some concerns: the price you quoted me is it for a half-Duplex 10Mbps? because i dont want a half-duplex line.
The whole issue was caused by my DC giving me strange prices for connections upgrades as in a 10Mbps connection would cost $350/Mo. while upgrading to a 20Mbit/s line costed 3-4K per month!!! They also gave me the price after referring to the 20Mbit/s as a guarranteed 20Mbit/s line which shows that my current 10Mbit/s connection would not be able to handle just about anything.
I wanted BurstNET to tell me how much would their 10Mbit/s connection be able to handle (In GBs per month) etc...
And i want to make sure for the last time, after receiving the quote, concerning upgrading issues, that i would be able to add even another server and boost the connection to 20Mbps (obviously passing through both) for another $3000/Yr.
Basically in other words, the final look would be, two 2U servers connected through one 20Mbps port, ALL costing $6000/Yr. in $3000, and $3000 increments (after adding the second server).
