    "No."

    With that out of the way, most companies that offer co-location service will bundle bandwidth with their co-location products or offer it to their co-location customers. Those who don't are "carrier neutral," such as Equinix or Switch & Data.

    If you buy both co-location (space and power, basically) and bandwidth from the same company, then generally you are only responsible for your server(s).

    hi, thank you for your reply but i'm afarid that i do not understand. if... say i colo a box with Colo4Dallas, isn't they are responsible for network while i'm responsible to admin my own box.

    for example, if there is DDOS, is it my responsibility or colo provider?
