Unhappy Dedicated Hosting w/ unlim. bandwidth?

Wondering what people know...

I'm looking for a new host, or at least an alternative to my current one. I require my own, powerful, server, and basically unlimited bandwidth (not to mention 24x7 support).

Anybody have any suggestions? Searching on the web for dedicated hosting yields a thousand results and no real good place to start. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Okay, you want an dedicated server with unlimited bandwidth. To make this short you won't find it...

You can get a dedicated cobalt with 150 gigs worth of transfer for $99 dollars a month.

*shrug* I have "unlimited" bandwidth now...which is basically just a dedicated T-1 that only I use, and I basically max the bandwidth on it.

I don't know anything about Cobalt servers...but I need to run Windows 2000.

You do not have unlimited bandwidth on your T1. Your bandwidth is limited to 1.54 Mbps.
There is HUGE difference between unlimited bandwidth (which is physically impossible) and a 1.54 Mbps pipe/bandwidth.

You can send me an email or an ICQ message and we can discuss setting up a server for you on a capped line.

OK, unlimited bandwidth was not the proper term. I know it's not unlimited, but I get "unlimited" transfer on my T-1...I'm limited only by the rate of the T-1. That's all I meant. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif

Thats more like it... unfortunately all the companies that I have heard of that offer capped lines with no total transfer limit seem to have very poor support.

They include companies like maxim.net... Hopefully energyhosting will be a far better choice.

Maxim.net has provided goos yupport for me in almost 11 months now. You can also get their managed services so they handle any server errors at once.
