    Unmetered vs. Metered ???

    Someone mentioned corenetworks.net in one of the posts, so I went to look at them, then checking out the options, it got me thinking about this, what is the difference/what does it mean?

    Unmetered Bandwidth Options vs. Metered Bandwidth Options ?

    Unmetered 3Mbps/month +$0.00

    Metered 1,000GB/month +$0.00

    So, are they saying that I can get 3Mbps 24/7 for an entire month for no extra, or 1,000GB total transer at ??? Mbps (I would assume 10Mbps or 100Mbps depending on the setting.) ??

    Ok, so I am trying to answer my own question...

    Let me just ask it. What's the difference?

    Thanks.

    P.S. They have an Unmetered @ 10Mbps for $350.00/month, but come on... Is it "really" unmetered? (Just like those shared "unlimited transfer" type accounts, where they hack you off at the knees when you go past their invisible "unlimited" number.

    Well that 10mbps unmetered at 350$ per month seems ok, it's probably a 10mbps port dedicated to you, which if you were to fully use 24/7 for a month would yield you about 3300GB.

    Yes, exactly.

    The difference is in burst speed, and the ability to be charged bandwidth
    overages to name a few. If you select unmetered, that is your port speed,
    and you can not transfer any faster than that. If you select metered, you
    can transfer at up-to your selected burstable port (10 or 100Mbps), and
    only the amount of data transfer is counted, and is subject to overage
    charges if you utilize more than the allotted bandwidth in that billing period.

    Yes, it is. We don't do any type of traffic shaping or bandwidth limiting
    on our network. All users should be able to utilize up-to their full port
    speed as each port is dedicated, and uplinks have plenty of capacity to
    support line-rate.

    Hope this helps.
