Just so there is no confusion, we want 1GBPS for $2000 per month unmetered.

I just received an email stating:

” Chris -

We can do that for you. We’re a CDN (a la Limelight) but won’t try to up-sell you and we’re much more flexible regarding our clients’ needs. We would need a 100Mbps commit though for the people time and port charges.

Some quick questions:

- You’re asking for $20/Mbps + power right?
- What city do you need this in? We are located in over 25.
- Do you need remote hands for the boxes?
- We will also let you burst with no penalty - you’ll just pay for what you use.

Give me a buzz and we’ll discuss specific needs and implementation time.

I will not reveal the author, but I will say that in my last blog post I specifically stated:

http://iweb8.com/colocation/unmetered-racks/

The best deal I can find is $2000 USD for a 100MBPS unmetered line for us. That is too narrow of a band. We need unmetered bandwidth because we are going to max it out 24/7, (thousands and thousands of terabytes).
If you have a 1+ GBPS solution for about the same price, please let me know”

We can ALREADY get $20/MBPS from Canix OR iWeb. We want MORE. We want you to give us $2 $5 per MBPS, unmetered, period. Is that unreasonable? If you think so, then please don’t contact me. I’m in the business of making the impossible happen. So should my service providers.

Better yet, you can trade us the bandwidth for equity if you like. That way if we win you win, and if you don’t provide the huge bandwidth service we need to win against other search engines, WE ALL LOSE. Ready to share some costs and payoffs?

UPDATE: For the record, we are not going to iWeb, I told my ISP at Canix that we would go there and we will(though it’s nowhere near $2/mbps $5/mbps). They shaved some money off the iWeb price, but I can’t say how much. I would only reconsider for 1GBPS for an insane price or to get an equity deal. This is to run a massive HTTP bot on many machines via cat gigabit. To inconvenience me into driving the server rig further than Montreal, I need < $5/MBPS.

UPDATE 2: - We will also let you burst with no penalty - you’ll just pay for what you use.

Here’s the thing even ISPs apparently don’t understand about HTTP bots like GoogleBot ect….

They’re going to burst no matter what. The bot machines keep spawning threads and processes until the set machines resource limits are reached by the software resource checking functionality, only limited by the number of machines. It’s going to burst and cause unbelievable financial damage to the company running it. It’s not doable that way. Bandwidth should NOT be burstable.

There is no peak usage. The thing runs 24/7 like the Terminator, like a ROBOT. It’s not bandwidth that is determined by human consumption of web pages or web driven resources. This is not wikipedia.com. I would assume that once you get to be a bandwidth sales rep you already know this about search engines??? I dunno. I’m tired. I have a short fuse now. I am positive we’ll go to Canix because I haven’t gotten any good offers from outside of Montreal.

Do you have a 1GBPS connection to the internet laying around?

The best deal I can find is $2000 USD for a 100MBPS unmetered line for us. That is too narrow of a band. We need unmetered bandwidth because we are going to max it out 24/7, (thousands and thousands of terabytes).
If you have a 1+ GBPS solution for about the same price, please let me know NOW. We can ship you the servers if you have insurance and the proper documentation.

2k + tax is the most we can afford for a monthly fee, so please don’t email me with offers for more money. I already talked to Limelight Networks’s rep. We are not interested in managed solutions for hundreds of thousands of dollars. I just want 30 amps and the port, period. We can’t afford more under any circumstance. Contact me if you can do it. We need this for December 1rst.

 UPDATE: Before you respond: “your drives can’t absorb thousands and thousands of terabytes”, 98% of what comes down on HTTP on the web is garbage. It’s filtered. It’s never indexed. It gets read, then it gets flushed. You still have to get it to index it though.
