What exactly is this, and how does one go about "renting space in a data center"?

How expensive is this?

Because

A) Cable networks are synchonous; meaning all devices on the node must take turns speaking. If download and upload were the same, you would not get 1.5 down due to the other users on your node.

B) 99% of the broadband users have no clue about computers and are constantly hammering away at the net due to trojan horses and viruses.

C) People like you who want T1 speeds at dial-up prices so you can swamp the pipe with warez, gamez, and mp3z..lol. Really, this is a HUGE problem. ISP's have to pay big bucks for bandwidth... They can't resell it to you for $40/month an make a profit.

As for the datacenter question: see www.serverbeach.com (http://www.serverbeach.com/catalog/index.php?REF=H38GR5QZB6). Thier Win2k servers are nicely priced, and thier network runs really well (I run my webhosting business on one of thier leased linux servers).

HEY!! Thanks for the link...this looks pretty promising. I just with it was a little cheaper http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Anyway, I don't think that the home user should be villified for wanting a reasonable amount of bandwith, and I don't believe that, with the way that technology is going, that 1.5 up and down is unreasonable, I actually think that it is fairly modest, at a reasonable price.
