    green is out. blue is in.

    of course unmetered. You dont pay per GB on a large scale.

    Your 95th percentile must be :eek3:

    We pay $16 per mbit 95th for Level3... Cogent called us the other day though and were going down to about $5 with a very small commit on a gig port. :o

    How many servers have you got and how many users to be pushing that much traffic? :o

    I can give you transit much cheaper than that.

    Where are your servers located? Switch & Data? Equinix? L3 gateway? How much traffic do you move?

    Yes.
    Depends on your traffic levels and minimum commit, but yes. 95th percentile billing etc.

    Hmm.. In that area..

    I'm at 11 great oaks, 529 S bryant, and the level 3 gateway. pretty sure they all have direct access to the SV1 & SV2.

    How much of that gig e do you think you can commit to using on a monthly basis? (the higher your commit, the lower your rates.).

    Pm me an email or number I can call you at and give you some details. Im the network architect, not a sales puke, but I can tell you what you need to know.
