yeah I know either ethernet or fiber, This guy from XO offered me a T1 for 450 Monthly, Imagine what I could get for 450 from a tier1 provider. Atleast 3-4 Mbps on a 100Mbps Burstable port. LOL If I wanted to run it out of my house I would go for a T1.
They need to put a true DC up here in Washington. All they have that I know of is Fisher Plaza, and the westin building, There is some other corny ones around that try to sell you 512K for 400 a month. Thats one I know of in Tacoma. and thats off a T3 HAHA
Unfortunately, I can't speak intelligently of that area in reguards to this business, but I would have to assume it is because they have to backhaul their connections somewhere and their fiber loop fees are ridiculous.. My guess at least..
