    Unlimited, Unmetered, Burstable Bandwidth

    Can someone recommend a reliable provider who charges a fixed fee for bandwidth usage? I am looking for gig connections to a few dedicated servers and interested in paying a flat fee for usage.

    Most any provider can provide that, are you looking for a full gig of usage per server or just a gig connection, how much do you actually plan to use? That will be key to the price, also, what's your price range and what hardware specs are you looking for?

    Are you talking about unmetered connections at 1 gbps? Please fill us in a little bit more with what lumbyjj said, and a little more details on the actual hardware specs.

    A 1Gbps unmetered line is what is sounds like you need. Do you need full 1Gbps burst capabilities 24/7? If not then a shared unmetered plan might fit the bill, otherwise, you need a dedicated Gbps line and that is not going to be cheap.

    $30,000 is definitely a bit high. You should easily be able to find options at $10,000 a month or less for a dedicated 1 Gbit/sec circuit.

    Netriplex (UberBandwidth) just today advertised a sale they're having, $2,499 for an unmetered gigabit port. I think that's just for colocation, though.

    They did also have a special for a dedi box with 30TB/mth of bandwidth on a gigabit port for $149, but that's not flat-rate like the OP wanted.

    Thats way too expensive, expect to pay 800 - 3000 euro for dedicated gigabit unmetered including a medium end dedicated server (1CPU, ~ 4 - 8GB ram upto 4 HDD) so about $1100 to $4300

    Check with FDC... They are known for their unmetered offerings and I know I've seen 1Gbps offerings on their website before.

    Good luck finding out; nearly every link on their site currently returns a 404.

    I know a fair price would probably be somewhere between $10k-$15k a month to be honest. At least from my experience.
