Would you consider this shared plan too expensive? Can I find better?

To me this seems quite expensive. Its one of the standard packages my current host is offering in order to accommodate my new bandwidth requirements. I was just wondering if I could get the same bandwidth allowances but at much lower cost.
I'm just looking for a reliable host that isnt going to pretend it does more than it can, 250gb is all I will need. Any suggestions or reccomendations for a suitable host would be greatly appreciated.
Are you happy actually with your host? if yes, then no, is not expensive .
If you're happy with their service, I suggest to not try to look for a new host just to save a couple of bucks a month. Your peace of mind worth more than that.
I agree with Jedito said - you may find cheaper, but that host may also have a lower quality of service...
To be quite honest, I actually think that is fairly cheap for 250GB transfer. Is this generated via dynamic [PHP, MySQL] content or static content - this will make a difference on the amount of strain that is put on the server.
I agree with everyone else. It may be "expensive" but it was your time worth to you? If the service works fine for you now, why change anything? You'd be much better in the long run to stay put.

The truth is that you can always find better out there. The question is if you really want to. If your host hasn't dropped the ball on you and have proven themselves worthy of your time, you might find it worthwhile to stay on. Doing that alone will save you all the hassles of changing hosts which as those of us who have done that before can tell you - the worst things can crop up out of the blue during these host changes.
Why not trying out a few other host, while keeping your site at the current one?
It's not a bad idea at all to have a backup host, anyway.
And many hosts have money back guarantee.
I wouldn't recommend changing a host without first testing the new candidate very well.
I think the real experiences will help to settle your mind more than any suggestions we can give, unless you are someone who need to follow other people.
You could easily find someone cheaper...
But that isnt always a good thing. This price isnt at all outragious for what you are getting. I say, like others have already posted, If the service has been good so far.. Stay with it.
If it aint broke, dont fix it.
