    That really depends on your requirements. It's not something that can be set in stone. Alot of things can cause the price to fluctuate, and while one DC may be cheaper for a certain arrangement, that same DC might be alot more expensive if you require something different.

    1) How much rackspace/floorspace do you need?
    2) What are your power requirements?
    3) What quality (BGP or single provider) and how much bandwidth do you need? Do you want a fiber drop or an ethernet drop?
    4) What are your IP addressing needs? Do you have your own ASN and block?

    Needless to say, it's really something you should ask the datacenter themselves.

    Superb! Their facility is 24/7 staffed, fast reboots, very smart remote hands, and their network is excellent!

    GIPnetworks came from Globalcon. We just moved there from The Planet and LOVE them. Great network (I'm running on Xeex) and it's been 100%.

    PM me if you want more information but when you call - ask for Reyner. He owns it and will treat you fair.

    I agree. I was with Globalcon back in 2006, and Reyner is a really good guy. I never had any problems.

    I have tried about 7 different data centers, and I can tell you that you will not find better than Colo4dallas. We have been using them since 2004, as well as a couple other places. Their support is the fastest, most knowledgeable, and most reliable out of all the ones I've tried.

    The only minor issue I have is their Mbps pricing for Level 3 bandwidth (it's reasonably priced given their service). Given the level of service, you could argue it's under-priced.

    However, we are still trying to find some good "secondary" DC's for our less-critical clients, the other ones I've tried - I have not been impressed with.

    We moved into Colo4Dallas just over 2 years ago and have had no network issues at all, 100% uptime. In this modern world, it's nice to know they have PLENTY of power available too

    Colo4Dallas can't be praised enough. If you're thinking about colo'ing in Dallas and you're not thinking about them, you're making a mistake. Give them a call and move in ASAP, you'll be very glad you did.

    We've been with them for over a year and we've been happier than ever, not to mention more succesful. Our growth rate in the last year leaves all previous years far behind.
