    100mbps , Celeron 1000mhz 512mb ram CHEAT?!!

    Well I read a lot of high bandwidth offers.

    like 100mbps full duplex then when i look at hardware.

    usualy its celeron or sempron.
    with 512 ram

    How in hell can such a crapy cpu puch 33tb per month?!!

    because most of those companies which offer such unmetered plans do not offer high end servers?

    was wondering if they cheat or something

    Acctually its not hard to push 100mbps out of a Celeron. Hell you can easily push 100mbps out on an old pentinum II or III. Depending on your content. If you are serving up static files you would have few problems.

    I think the biggest cheat is that if you get anywhere close to 33TB a month they will cap your connection or "ask you to leave". 100mb connection on all the time costs at least $1100/month

    Do they hosting companies say that the 100Mbit is shared between servers or that its 1:1 on yours. Also if you look at shoutcast from a VPS that can easily push 5-6TB without taking up much CPU. It doesn't take much to CPU to push out simple data. Its the PHP/MySQL websites that need the CPU to generate the content

    Also, there is a difference between 100Mbit UNMETERED and having a 100Mbit port.
