    100Mbit dedicated - recommendations?

    Hi there,

    We're looking to expand our servers and we are looking for a solid provider who can give us a decent spec machine (1024Mb ram, 60gb hd, P4 or AMD athlon) with a 100Mbit connection at preferibly 800gb or higher of monthly data transfer. We're looking to pay not more than $250 USD per month.

    I've been reading the forums for the past week, and we have decided NOT to go with SM/TP or - we've just heard too many bad stories about them, sorry guys.

    We are currently with ServerBeach at the moment who are an AWESOME provider, their network uptime has been 100% since we joined them at the beginning of october. Sadly though they only offer 10Mbit connections which are not enough for our needs anymore, but if anyone ever needs a 10Mbit dedicated - ServerBeach are second to none, a truely fantastic ISP.

    We basicly need a host with the very best network uptime, obviously for $250 per month we're not going to get some rackspace 100% SLA or anything (although it would be nice )

    I've been looking at as a provider, who seem very resonable. Has anyone got any experiences with them they would like to share?

    EDIT: - We do not want to go with the 'budget' EV1, SM/TP, Managed, etc for various reasons down to uptime & reliability. We've had clients who have migrated from EV1 due to common network problems & DDOS attacks on their network.

    Any suggestions would be very well appricated, and I will continue to keep searching the forums, thanks alot.

    check out

    very fast network, and really good uptime for $50 more you should even be able to get a dual xeon 2.4ghz most likely.

    if you're interested or have some questions feel free to contact me and ill answer them...

    im with ********** for colocation, ********** buys bandwidth from choopa so i know the network is good.. fnap only offers colocation now though (its cheaper thru fnap then choopa)

    but i heard choopa support is good too from friends who run game servers there

    In all honesty. I would recomend getting a rackmount server, colocating it though They have great deals, 5, 10, & 100Mbps fixed connections. For a one unit and 5mbps fixed (about 1,500Gb in and Out) for around $275 a month. This should be more than enough for what you need

    I'd recommend that you contact the guys at - I'm sure they'd be able to sort something out with you.

    I've had a server with them for quite some time, and had amazing uptime. I think they may be currently out of stock, but talk to them anyway.
