When I had my home server before I sent it to a collocation, I used Optimum Online. Its going to be around $75 dollars a month with a business plan. Check if its available in your area.

Because I am a Comcast customer. I asked them a lot of questions about the cap because it was a concern for a household with several people. I was also worried about the future, because the future will call for a lot more bandwidth. I also asked them for instance how am I going to monitor my PS3 usage, etc. They straightforward informed me that commercial/business doesn't have a cap. The frustrating thing is that when I asked for a price quote, they said no because I'm not a "business agent."

No, I haven't purchased it. They wouldn't even give me a quote.

I started a web hosting company. I can't run that on a residential line.

so its worth it getting a collocation instead of running it at home with a ISP business plan?

In most cases yes, but check into collocation costs and compare for yourself. For 1 server I would not even bother to factor in your hydro costs but if you plan to grow you may want to just go straight to collocation. The biggest thing is the connection. A data center will be able to offer you a good connection for cheaper.
thxs for the info...ill look in collocation now...do you know any good ones by any chance?
