Thread: What would you pay??

    I reckon it totally depends on the type of useage. Obviously open slather FTP is going to kill the connection real quick, so you'd have to throttle it. Basic web, SMTP and POP3 wouldn't add much either.

    I remember the days when I was a lad and I worked for an ISP where we had a 256KBPS burst to 512KBPS frame relay to service nearly 10,000 users!! That WAS 5 years ago mind you!

    Remember, I'd only be hosting personal websites. The server as a whole wouldn't get more than a 1000 hits a day with 10-15 users.

    Yeah, you're probably right Albinus. I plan to run my own FTP site as well, so for it to be half decent I'd probably need most of the 256kbps for myself. There doesn't seem to be any interest anyway. All the better for me!! With a 1.5MBPS/256KBPS connection, I'll be able to download full CD lenght DivX movies of 700MB in a little over an hour!:smokin: :smokin:

    I must admit the reliability has been better on FreeBSD than Linux (sorry Bern) ;)

    I didn't mention it in my Poll question, but I was meaning AUS$75 per year!

    That's about US$40.....

    I personally use the $10US monthly plan for my website. They have some pretty reasonable prices and I've never had a connectivity problem with them.
