Where we are currently hosted, we only have a T1 and are restricted by the bandwidth. Here at our location, we run BGP routing with multiple T's. This means that after the move we will sometimes use more than a T1 of bandwidth, sometimes less. If it averages out to a T1 for the month, my cost is $995 on the cheapest T1 I have. Average T1's cost $1100 - $1200 per month. >But if we make that the target, on the "we'd like to pay our way if we >can" basis, then we should use it. > >Also, we should count donated bandwidth from mirrors against that.

An average cost of $1150 per T1 per month breaks down to $3.64 per GB per month. Ron D.
