layeredtech: false advertising or mistake ?
I wonder why layeredtech.com have put on their main page Layer 1 offer as below:
Intel P4 Series
• 512MB-2GB RAM
• 80GB-500GB SATA Drives
• 1500 GB Tier 1 Bandwidth
Starting at $70.00/Month
There is no such offer of P4 at that price (if you click on Intel P4 Series link), unless you take a simple celeron and even with celeron, it starts at $75.00/ month, there is no such price as they adverstised above !
What is that ? bad, false advertising, mistake ?
For a free Internet !
Take your pick. Email them and tell them about the problem. If they dont fix it.. well
It must be a mistake but if you write a nice email they may give you the benefit of the doubt
I really doubt they would do that on purpose. I would imagine they have an order/inventory management system that generates pages on the fly and there is an incorrect quantity.
Offering High Quality Dell Dedicated Servers since 1995
It's probably a mistake but really is there any need to cause such a fuss? Their pricing is very low as it is. You should have e-mailed them first really ...

Thank you for pointing out this mistake. It has been corrected. We have no intentions of false advertising. Therefore, we would be happy to provide you a Cel server package for $70/month. If you want to take advantage of this, please send an email to . Just state that you need a special order link for a $70 Celeron package per Chris. [email protected]
celeron is in P4 series and now it is 75$ on homepage
L1-INTEL-CEL-2.0+-B Base System Configuration:
Intel Celeron 2.0GHz 80GB Hard Drive 512MB RAM Bandwidth: 1500GB IP Addresses: 8 (5 usable) Private VLAN Basic Resource Monitoring FreeBSD, OpenBSD, Linux, Windows* 100% Self Managed and Dedicated
Monthly Fee Options:

LayeredTech increased their pricing on low-end servers (while increasing bandwidth) a while back - they used to have a $70 Celeron, not anymore.
I guess the homepage stuff was just left over from that, a few months ago
Looks like the issue has been resolved. Probably would have been better to have contacted the host directly, but glad that it's taken care of now.
Best of luck!
