Hey there HN’ers,
After my post a while ago about what I pay for bandwidth I got a bunch of inquiries who my hosting party is.
I’ve asked them if I can go public with the numbers, the answer is yes, so here is the deal that I’m getting with all the figures and specs of the machine. Note that this is not the same as the offer on their website, it is substantially better, both in payment terms as well as in the monthly fee. This works out to about E 1.45 / Mbit / month with a machine that has 36T local storage included. The catch is that you really need to be a bandwidth hog to make it worth your while, if you are only going to use a couple of Mbit then you’re better off with something smaller. This is a ‘clean’ deal there is no kickback to me behind the scenes or other shady practices like that.
