    * 1 Mbit/sec = about 300 GB Bandwidth Per Month
    Hi, I would like to inform you take 1mbit is hardly close to 300GB.
    In theory, that is possible.


    In reality, that is not possible as traffic patterns have its out and downs (eg. peak and nonpeak), also to push it to full means some visitors will experience timeouts since when the usage is maxed all packets sent will be dropped, and the site will remain inaccessible till it drops to below 1mbit.

    I would say that 1mbit is closer to 200/250GB than 300GB.

    Hello,

    1) Mods I apologize this ad was placed in the wrong area can you please move it.

    2) The traffic is not limited to this amount. IE: We place no limits but will be using 95% billing methods. So if your VPS goes over you will not experience a drop of traffic but if you use above the 95 percentile then you would be billed accordingly.

    3) In realitity 1 Mbps can actually push beyond the 300GB per month if used to its full potential. Please ensure you take a look at the many topics online showing this mathematically.

    Hi, don't wish to argue upon that, but do note that most providers acknowledge this fact.

    For example, CoreNetworks offers 1TB -OR- 4mbps unmetered (no charge for converting).
    Simple calculations show that it assumes 250GB bandwidth usage per mbps.

    Would it be possible to convert to 330GB bandwidth rather than 1mbps on your plans?
    Mathematically, as you said, 1mbps = 330GB.

    Mathematically 1mbps is 660GB, with 330GB in both directions.

    tsj5j,

    Yes you can definitely do that for you although we have not had any clients go above the 95th percentile and if clients do come close we will be quick to notify them about the overages that are inevitable but as stated this has not yet happened.

    On another note since we have recieved a few emails regarding this question: bandwidth overcharges go for $5 per .1 Mbit/sec (or $50 per 1 Mbit/sec).

    Just a quick note regarding this thread.

    Everyone just remember that the general rule of bits and bytes is 8 bits = 1byte. 1mbitps and 1mbps are NOT equal. 1mbps = 8mbitps. When your talking bandwidth 1mbit of bandwidth is a substantially smaller amount of bandwidth than 1mbps.

    I'm sure the original poster of this thread was referring to mbits, as bandwidth is most often sold by up/downstream providers in bit levels (IE gigabit lines). You can see the differences between these values at speedtest.net Speedtest.net can show you your networks speed in kbitsps, kbps, mbitsps, mbps and thus illustrate how large of difference is represented by the bit and byte measurements.

    I see this quoted in so many places, I just thought I would point this out here. On a side note I've often seen dedicated providers offer 10mbs and others 10mbitsps unmetered connections and wondered if users realized how much of a difference there is between the 2. Most of this comes from the mb abbreviation that was once very ambiguous, but now is generally accepted as a megabyte abbreviation
