SSPs and bandwidith

What bandwidth do SSPs offer to their customers in the US? If we place 1 TB of storage with StorageNetworks or WorldStor, how much bandwidth do these vendors offer to the users? Is there any rule of thumb for storage vs. the bandwidth?

Also how much GB/month download is offered by the SSPs?


I'm not sure that they offer bandwidth at all. Somebody needs to take care of transit, but I expect that this can be negotiated any number of ways right now. If I were you I would check out buying a package deal for bandwidth and storage as well as pricing it piecemeal. I really doubt there is any "take it or leave it" pricing in this market.

Happy negotiating.
