    depends on the bandwidth.

    I pay $2500/mo for 500mb Cogent Fiber, $1000/mo for each full cabinet with 40A power.

    They have 1/3 cabinets for $350/mo with 20A power... Bandwidth is always extra.

    Why do you want to colo your own stuff.. just get a dedicated. It will be cheaper unless you have some insane 1U machine already

    there's no point in colocating a 1U unless you already own a baller ass 1U machine or need custom hardware. (Telco equipment etc)

    Colo isn't cheap brotato. Go dedicated.

    Depending on the exact power usage and bandwidth requirements, probably around $100 or so.

    We pay around $1800/month a rack for 5 racks with 16A @ 230 V.

    some place in vegas :dunno:

    3.2mbps bandwidth
    8 ips
    1U
    Not sure about power.

    I think we're locked in to some old price. Now they're quoting $149/mo as the lowest

    Fuck you guys have it cheap over there. Maybe i'll try sign up to a dedi there, from here, for all my shit. Timezones would suck if something went wrong and I needed support, but apart from that i'd probably save thousands.
