I've always wanted to enter a "niche market" like this. I've never had a boss that saw this as big enough to break even. This really is a small enough endeavour for a few people to start up. Here in NYC, you can get some decent co-lo at a "Tier 1" for $650/mo. and bandwidth at $150/MB with no commit. And that's at a very nice facility. I'm sure that others know of even better deals, but I think that's a fair market price for a facility/name that everyone knows and trusts. If anyone on the east coast also thinks this is something worth putting together (either for-profit or as a co-op situation), feel free to contact me directly. Thanks, Charles
