    * Looking for Unmetered Server and High Drive Space

    looking for a server with unmetered bandwidth.


    What is actually meant by unmetered server ?
    In unmetered, is there some limit or not ?

    I guess from LT, it was 10 mbps bandwidth = limit of 3300 GB per month
    From Server Matrix, the package was around $ 240 per month, but they didnt say any limit like 3300 GB or anything, just wrote 10mbps unmetered.


    i have checked some offers from some companies but there is a lot of difference in prices. I am bit confused now.

    I have to host a video sharing wbesite which is having 20 GB data transfer each day and it is growing.

    Hard Drive 300 - 500 GB

    I was checking packages with 10 mbps and 100 mbps.

    Please help
    Thanks in advance.

    There are some nice offers from ovh.com - but you have to read French, as the English site is not listing them.

    Simple, Just calculate it yourself.

    10 mbps = 1.25 Megabytes a second

    1.25 * 60 = 75 megabytes a minute

    75 * 60 = 4,500 megabytes an hour

    4,500 * 24 = 108,000 megabytes a day

    108,000 * 365.25 = 39,447,000 megabytes a year

    39,447,000 / 12 = ~3,287,250 megabytes a month

    3,287,250 / 1024 = ~3,210.21 gigabytes a month.

    So basically that "Un-metered" plan has a limit of about 3,200 Gigs of transfer a month. just multiply that by 10 for a 100 mbps line and 100 for a 1gbps line.

    alpha, thanks for reply

    i was thinking of something similar, but was not sure

    so i guess if i go for a 100 mbps server, it will be really good one with almost 32,000 GB of data transfer a month.

    If you peg a 10Mbps connection 24/7 for a full month you will use 3300GB of bandwidth. They are just specifying how many GB a 10Mbps unmetered connection will allow.

    10Mbps cap is definately not good enough to stream video.
