    I think you left out a subdirectory... I found this http://www.innersoul.us/images/oneday.png

    If it is this one, then would guess around 160 kbps for 95th

    Yes that is the one. For some reason I expected it to be higher.

    I need to post this differently because it appears I can't edit my post. Are you sure you don't mean 160KBps? :whistles waiting for the timelimit to expire:

    EDIT: Ah it appears I tried to edit the wrong post LOL

    My guess would be around 150 kbps, and no I do not mean KBps as your max peak according to that graph is only 204 kbps.

    150KB/s if I had to guess from the looks of it.

    Read the scale on the left of the page. The mtrg graph is scaled in Bytes.

    And actually my peak usage is about 300KBps because I have just as much outgoing as I have incoming. That is what I read but maybe I am reading it wrong. The server is running game servers so each connected player will send and receive about 3.5KBps of data.

    Since your graph is in Bytes/s and not Bits/s, you're looking at about 1.3Mbps....slightly under the capcity of a T1.

    I thought a t1 was limited to transferring about 192KBps. So that could be upload of 100 and download of 92. I didnt think that meant you could do 192KB up and 192KB down. Am I wrong in my logic?

    A t1 is 1.54Mbps full duplex.

    Ah. I always just thought it was 1.54Mbps maximum throughput.

    I think some people thought KBps was a typo. Normally you see "b" as in bits when talking speed (A T-1 is 1.54Kbps) and "B" when talking about storage or total transit (We offer 1000GB of transfer).

    Oh no, some less than honest provider just got an idea to offer servers with 1000G of transfer, and say in the Terms and Conditions that it is 1000Gb, not GB.
    Looking for next opportunity

    thats Mbps not Kbps

    1.54 Mbps

    I always assumed that a T-1's worth of data was 1.544 mbps. But when my local CLEC provided the service to a local client the T-1 was on a ATM backbone and only provided around 1.3 mbps. You lose over 200k when provisioned over a ATM backbone.

    Yes, ATMs small cell size means there is a large percentage of overhead per cell, in relation to a typical Ethernet frame for example.

    Would seem like a decent deal for 149 a month if it wasnt for the large amount of packetloss I have during the day. If all I was doing was hosting this would be great. During the day however I have about 10 to 15% packetloss causing my cs servers to be unplayable. The maximum I have pushed through this connection is about 4.5MB per second.

    I did say 1.54Kbps instead of Mbps. See, we all get sideways on this one.

    DaSoul, you have to look at your needs in deciding if this is a good deal. I have many customers that cannot handle packet loss. For them 1% is too much. There are others that come to us wanting a cheap price for a lot of bandwidth, but they are okay with a little loss. If you are okay with 10-15% packet loss and they are providing it at a price point acceptable to you, then life is good.

    $149 for 1.3Mbps with 10-15% packet loss seems a bit high to me. It all depends on your customers.

    Yes I am currently looking for other options. I have found a place that will sell me 1U space with 500GB per month transfer at a price point of 100.00 bucks a month with very little packet loss. Although I won't be able to transfer as much it really is what I am interested in. Located in Chicago Equinox
