    Co-Location in or Around Woburn, MA

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Co-Location buildings around Woburn, MA. I've been to one I think was in Waltham but I forget the name. I need something close like within a 15 minute drive. Nothing fancy I'm just looking to setup some stuff maybe to test out. I allready have the Rack if they will let me use it.

    Check out http://www.towardex.com. Although I have never done business with them, I can tell you that these people have clue++, as evidenced by the up-and-coming PacketOS system for edge routing using commodity hardware.

    These people are offering to configure a bgp session with 2 upstream providers for you for $200 ? That's pretty good...

    TowardEx is awsome I have been a client of there OCCAID project for a long time and been an ip client in general for about 2 years. As tical said they do have major CLUE and I know there network is amazing but never actually used there collocation service.

    But they have space in Switch + Data in Waltham, MA thats about right on top of the location you need. Contact then and speak with James.

    I'm trying to remember the company name but there's another data center in Waltham that a few companies use. I belive its Data something and there a big company of data centers across the US.

    Not sure but that Facility is Switch + Data. Otherwise I'm not really sure what your seeking. I'm not aware of a BIG provider in that facility.

Now I remember because when i called they refered me to TowardEx "this was a while back" I fogot about the name. I think I'll contact them on Monday. It was quite a nice data center I got a tour of someones cage there.

    Yea Switch + Data sells space and you choose from one of there providers in the meet me room...... I was debating on getting space there so I just happen to have the list....

    C2C Fiber
    Cogent Communications
    Verio
    Verizon
    NAII
    NSTAR Communications
    Qwest
    RCN Communications

    I know there 1/2 cab runs about $500 per month with $500 setup fee unless you sign a 24 month agreement the setup is waived.

    Also there verio b/w is $175 per Mbps

    Their cogentco quote's I got are about $500 per 10M and burst $50 per M or $1,500 per 100Mbps.
