    Lucky, we're at $22/mbit, we also have no commit though and similarly to you it's very high quality so I guess it makes it worth it.

    $25/Mbit no commit (Level 3, Internap, Time Warner Telecom, AboveNet and Cogent)

    However if I want 100Mbps dedicated line it will run me about $8.99/Mbit. Which is pretty good for premium bandwidth.

    Wholesale market price for almost any carrier right now is about $3 - 9 on a 100 Mbps commit.

    I was paying $50/Mbit for over two years but am in the process of moving my colo box to a DC with pricing of $4/Mbit.

    You've got lucky! Other guys are paying $40 per Mb/s for much lower quality network

    And I know other guys who are selling bandwidth for $70 per Mb/s!

    And how many Mb/s are you using now? If not too much then they are making money on everything else, knowing that you are not using bandwidth anyway.

    equivalent of about $10-$12 (not American) for a pretty good service. Have paid more for poorer service.

    I've seen everything from $10-11/mb on a 10+ commit
    to $3.80/mb on a 1000+ commit.

    £8.33/Mbps here in the UK for 100Mbit with a major UK ISP. Probably on the slightly expensive side.

    Apparently you've never been quoted by Peak 10.

    Our quote from them 3 years ago: $300/megabit.
    Our quote from them last year: $250/megabit.

    But their circuits from Level3, Qwest, TWTC and UUnet are "the best" if you listen to their sales guys. (..shrug..)

    I may have understood it wrong, but I think they don't have high capacity lines at least in Atlanta - that why may be they are asking so much - they rather to sell space and less bandwidth... I think they don't have even 1 Gb/s lines, not talking about 10 Gb/s (or multiple 10 Gb/s).

    They brag about their network. And I mean brag-- the cornerstone of their marketing pitch. Obviously they are targeting executives rather than clueful techies. They have ordinary transit from ordinary carriers, but they make it sound exclusive. All fluff, no substance. Imagine the waiter at a fine restaurant bragging about their exclusive Kraft Mac-N-Cheeze products with Rago sauce from a jar.

    I've toured many facilities in the span of my career, and only Peak 10 made me feel like their salespeople previously sold used cars. Sunshine, smoke and fluff; useless sales-babble to anyone with a clue.

    Hey,

    I'm currently pulling at $3.49/mbit minimum 100mbps commit and it's a nice bit of networking too! Mzima, nLayer and XO

    Granted we're talking about bandwidth for a cage and not cabinets or single colo, but the price is about right for both I'd guess!

    Would be great without XO

    you can probably buy the FCP device yourself evne the multi 10g version and create your own blend for cheaper than what they charge and use their own carriers.

    Yeesh some of these prices are crazy - most people who have decent prices likely won't post due to contractual obligations .

    When posting please specify the type of bandwidth - $5 for cogent vs. $5 for level3 are leaps and bounds different!

    Actually I am pretty sure level3 offered us bandwidth at $5/meg too but we had some bad experience with them (before I was around) so we would rather go with cogent than level3.

    While this might be true you then have to manage and deal with all the connections that internap has which for some people might be more trouble than its worth. I honestly don't think we are getting nearly as good of a price we should be on internap with a 7 gig commit but I think we were on a 2 or 3 year contract which is almost up.

    Indeed you can get $5/meg Level3, though I find it somewhat astonishing that you would prefer cogent bandwidth over Level3. Would you mind clarifying on these bad experiences?

    Like I said it was before I was around so I am not sure on all the details but from the little I heard it was with issues when dealing with the staff and scheduling stuff (not so much the connection itself).

    At the moment we pay $15 per Mbps, hopefully it will become cheaper soon...

    Considaring over a year ago we were quoted under 10/M for internap on a 1g+ commit I believe you are getting screwed.

    Actually its Los Angeles. I was living in Japan for a while but got back to the U.S. not too long ago and haven't updated my profile yet.

    I agree that I think we pay way too much for a 7 gigabit commit but I am not evolved in our bandwidth provider decisions let alone negotiations.

    Yeah, I'm a surprised to see $14/meg on a hefty 7 gig commit. I thought Internap was more competitive than that on large commits.
