    $15 per mbps with 100% Up-Time(SLA)?

    I was doing some search and accidently come across Tristar Comm. I checked out their colocation pricing. It amaze me. They charge $1500 for 100mbps and 100% uptime guarantee. Anyone using them? Are they reliable? Is this too good to be true?

    Hmm.. Loads fine from where I can see. Basically I was trying to lookup an IP address and here is the result I get.

    Network IP address lookup:

    whois whois.arin.net 66.232.63.1:


    Tristar Communications (NETBLK-TRISTARNET) TRISTARNET
    66.232.0.0 - 66.232.63.255

    If anyone knows where i can find $20 per mbps please tell me i would pay you for theinformation...lol

    In fact, if you can find me anything less than $40 a month per mbps that doesnt require anything over a 5 mbps limit i will send you a check for $100.00 dollars just for making me a happy man

    I dont care if its cogent...............................................lol

    hey i just thought of something.. thats something else walmart could sale bandwidth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hehe.. i will talk to my department manager and see if i can get cheap bandwidth from walmart and they can have the under aged 5 year old kids do the cogent line installations instead of keeping them in factories all day just to make shoes...LOL

    Here you can find bands at many widths for under $20:
    http://www.rubberbands.co.uk/spec.html

    (couldent help it)

    The site thats posted looks to be this:

    Rack space + fee to connect to router + bandwidth = Monthly charges

    1/4 rack, 400
    port charge 1500
    10mbps for 200
    The Total per month would be: $2100

    so... No thanks
