    Best rates for large bandwidth


    What is the lowest per mbit rate for sites doing over a terabyte of bandwidth each month?

    Cogent offered $1/mbit with a 5 terabyte commitment, but I'm not sure about their network. Of course this is purely bandwidth and does not include servers etc.

    Do you mean $1 per mbps or $1 per mb?

    You only need a 16mbps connection to reach 5TB/month, so the former would only cost $16.

    For $1/mb (or $1/mbps with a 5TBps commitment) you would be paying $42 million / month.

    The first is way too low, and the second is way too high.
