    Infact, there are two OC-48's powering every major city with the @home service.

    heh.... yeah, i know how you feel. though i dont think its actually used yet (not sure), there are specs for an OC-256 (13Gbps).

    just for a frame of reference, a T-3 (45Mbps) would cost roughly $25,000 per month to lease. prices may have come down a bit since i looked into it, which was about 6 months ago, but it is still quite pricey i am sure.

    here's a chart listing some different carrier speeds. http://eons.org/content.asp?LinkID=1...=151&content=1

    FYI, most major dialup ISP's are using way less than an OC 48. I have a good friend that has a company that subcontracted for UU Net. Here's a page of his w/ pics of UU Net servers & fiber lines:

    All of the orange stuff is fibre -- AOL just bought their 22'nd OC-12 from UUNet.
    Go AOL! Or not...

    OMG

    I went to get a quote
    Mr.. *********,

    A flat rate OC-48 starts at $1,000000 per month depending on location and equipment. If this is
    something you
    would like to pursue further please let us know.

    Dont forget about download and upload limits.
    So on top of paying ridiculous amounts for bandwith you have to limit your transfers!!!
    It's tough being an ISP.

    Question

    what's a download/upload limit?
    is there one on an OC-48?

    An upload/download limit means you can only transfer a certain amount of data per month (example: 2 GB/month). If you wanted to transfer more data, you would have to pay more money. Your download speeds aren't affected by this though. Download/Upload speeds aren't the only things that cost ISP's money. They also have to pay for transfers, which is why they pass the cost on to you
