What is the purpose of this project?
The internet is evolving at an unprecedented pace and so are the capabilities of the networks intertwining our world. The demand for high bandwidth dedicated server solutions is growing, however I have not yet encountered a simple comparison site focusing solely on the providers offering bandwidth packages of 1 Gbps+. So I put together a list of providers offering bandwidth solutions from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps. The minimum traffic plans I researched start at 100TB.
How accurate is the pricing?
All the data has been gathered from publicly available resources. Either on the webpages of the particular providers or from a sales representative of the given company. If some packages have hidden limitations or aspects that significantly affect the performance, I make sure to mention them. The prices originally stated in other currencies were calculated into USD based on the foreign exchange rate to that day.
Why aren’t there any other hardware customization options?
To keep things simple I focused on two hardware specifications only. The basic (E3-1230, 16GB RAM, 2x240GB SSD storage or similar) and the advanced option (E5-2620, 64GB RAM, 2x240 GB SSD or similar). The main goal is to compare the pricing structures of various providers and point out any hidden limitations, fees or policies.
Please keep in mind that this is a new project and it will keep evolving over time, all comments are welcome, improvement suggestions even more so. If you have topics you would like me to write about don’t hesitate to drop me a suggestion and I will look into it.
