    best market place

    Hi all.

    I have been doing some co-location research lately comparing the
    prices in some countries like usa, uk, ca, de and es.

    I came to the conclusion that the cheapest place to colocate a server in a
    datacenter is germany (Frankfurt). I tried to compare datacenters with the same
    quality level because datacenter != datacenter.

    The price for colocation is ~30 Euro Month and the price for traffic is about 7 cents
    the GB.

    Has google fool me or is this observation right?

    Frankfurt has a great connectivity with all TIER-1 carrier and TIER-2 carrier available to choose from.

    So are there any other locations with same conditions (Tier-1/2 carrier)
    and such prices? (30.- + 0,07/GB) ?

    Thx in advance.

    Paying $12/mbit, as was the subject of a previous thread, puts your per-GB cost closer to 3 cents per gigabyte. That pricing level is common in the US when buying from a prominent Tier 2 carrier (Cogent) or their resellers.

    Realize also that if you are trying to offer services to customers/clients overseas that cheap bandwidth will only help you to a point. It doesn't matter how many 'Tier-1' providers with OC-192s the datacenter has, the pipe between continents is only so big.

    Irrelevant; this is something that a bandwidth consumer should not and can not concern themselves with, except to the extent that they can route around said deficiencies by sending their bits down another pipe if the economics are right. Short of that, nothing a consumer can do will unsaturate someone's longhaul links. It's someone else's problems, and being that carriers don't run MPLS-style QoS on longhaul interfaces (yet), the phenomenon you're referring to would be quickly noticed by all who use said link.
