    Bandwidth/Connection

    Hey Everyone.

    I have an ISP Lined up, I can get 16 Down, 1.5 Up (Mbits).

    Is that sufficient enough for 1 server.

    I will upgrade to roughly that for every server that I have.

    If not, any good providers under 300 per month for around

    100-200 People on the server?

    Thanks.

    Assuming your ISP even allows you to run a server, your max upload would be about 200gigs (overall) a month. How much bandwidth do you clients use monthly? Are these popular (more than 1000+ hits daily) sites?

    Assuming the average page is 80kb, and a site gets 1000 hits daily = (80,000kb (around 78megs) x 30 days in a month) = approximately 2.3 GB a month. of web traffic alone, not including e-mails/FTP).

    Overall a site with 1000 visitors daily should be allocated AT LEAST 3gigs per month.

    Also assuming the 100-200 clients have similar needs and usage patterns, we would want to be able to provide between 300gigs and 600gigs of traffic monthly.

    Honestly, I wouldn't even try to host 100-200 clients on a 1.5Mbit up connection. I dealt with a company hosting 60 on a similar connection, and it was pure slowness and chaos.

    So I should be looking at 16 Down, 16 Up.

    I worked out that 16 would get me roughly 5000GB Transfer per

    month. Factor in real world time and it is about 3000-4000GB.

    Any good providers in Ontario Canada?
