colocation space/inexpensive bandwidth
Since we're on the topic of colocation space this morning, I thought I would
post and ask if anyone has colocation cabinet space available at a Level(3)
or similar facility. Currently we colocate with a small ISP and are very
happy with their service, but we would like to be able to offer better
pricing to our customers. However, when last I spoke with L(3) sales folks,
their cabinets were 1000$/mo, with an added 2000$/mo minimum expenditure on
bandwidth/private line services per cabinet. This is too much for us, but
if someone has a few U available someplace that prices bandwidth in the
400$/Mbit or less range, I would be very interested in consuming that extra
space (for a fee, of course) and taking advantage of your bandwidth pricing.
Anyone near Minneapolis/Chicago/Louisville/Cincinnati would be preferable as
well, as currently we maintain our own equipment, and have no need to trust
a pair of "remote hands" to know what they are doing. In those areas we can
continue to have this benefit.
