Bradley_Wint is right. Hostmonster may claim to give you 15TB of bandwidth a month, but have you checked their ToS? Every single shared hosting provider has a clause that states that in the event your account is causing significant stress on the server --either in the form of bandwidth or CPU cycles-- in a way that could harm the delivery of service to the other customers on the same server (or in the worst case: their network) they hold the right to terminate your account without prior notice.

Believe me, I've talked to my fair share of shared hosting companies and confronted them with MM2C's bandwidth requirements, back in the day. A couple of years ago they would advertise with "Unlimited bandwidth" under the same Terms of Service, but since that marketing trick has stopped working, they have started to communicate ridiculous large numbers. In reality, I doubt they would allow you to go beyond 50GB a month.

Only Google can say you have 6GB+ of e-mail space and actually deliver on that promise. Wink

The server MM2C (and about a dozen other sites) is on is hosted by ServerBeach costs me $79 a month (I'm an early customer, so that specific plan and hardware has been phased out) and gives me 60GB of space and 900GB of bandwidth guaranteed.

Who is still on Dial Up, anywho?
I haven't noticed any change really, my broadband is so slow google takes at least 10secs to load. Mad


Lol, Google loads in 2 seconds for me. That ain't Broadband, bubba. That's dial-up in disguise. ;P

It's because it's wireless and the signal has to get upstairs to my room, even the PC downstairs the speed varies between 32Mbps and 5.5Mbps. Rolling Eyes

Sounds good. Smile

In my house, the wireless modem (yes, we use the piece of crap modem that came with our internet service) is located in my parents' bedroom, which is on the top floor of our house, and when I'm in the basement two floors down in the opposite corner of our house, I still get a fine signal. I still use the integrated wireless card in my laptop, and the crap Speedstream 6520 that we got for free. Surprisingly, my internet isn't too bad.

Yeah. When I get connected, the internet is fine. The only problem is that 50% of the time, my laptop is unable to connect to it. My parents aren't convinced that we need to get a new one, either Sad . I guess I'll have to pay for it myself... Neutral

That won't help my router get any better. Even when sitting right beside it, I get a 4 out of 5 bar signal Rolling Eyes That kind of pisses me off...

I'll create my own server thingie and give every subscriber 13 million yottabytes of bandwidth per day! Then your silly 79 dollar per month service will look like a 1st grade experiment.

Edit...so it is 1000...yet I've only posted only so much stuff of actual worth...

@mredtherocket: it already does look like a 1st grade experiment
i think that was your 1000th post, congrats Smile

@wannagoodcar: my signal isn't too bad, but the service we pay for is supposedly 512kb/s or 768kb/s, yet the most I ever get is 300.
