    Question Can someone please explain.....

    OK i am looking to figure out if colo is the way to go.

    Example layeredtech has dedicated servers that give you 1500GB bandwidth a month for under a hundred bucks and 100mbs uplink.

    Now fdcservers has colo for 49.00 plus Bandwidth as follows
    $15/Mbit - 1Mbit increments up to 10Mbit
    $9/Mbit - 10Mbit increments 10Mbit - 100Mbit
    $8/Mbit - 100Mbit+

    so to use 1500GB a month would cost you like 8.00 x 1500000 = 12 million dollars

    I must and most likely am confused as heck.

    What would the equivilent be between the 2

    I want to colo with 100mbs port and average 2000GB used a month. what would be the math calculations.

    I can't help you with your actual question but 1500GB is not equal to 1500mbit.

    1500GB is roughly 5mbit.

    1.5 tb is nice to xfer but what else do you get? What happens if your memory goes bad? Do they have a guaranteed time for replacement? Remember you get what you pay for.

    You're confusing Mbps of bandwidth with GB of data transfer. In a real world scenario, you'll get about 200GB per 1Mbps of billed bandwidth, so 1500GB would be equivalent to about 7-8Mbps. At FCD's rate, which is extremely cheap for colocation bandwidth, you would be paying about $120/month for 1500GB of data transfer.
