    I've already made it very clear that as long as you have submitted your ticket prior to the 2nd, it will be applied to your account. I cannot begin to explain how many hours I've spent going through these tickets only to be half way through them. They will all get done eventually.

    Thumbs up

    Well I have to say this is awsome Andrew.

    One thing I like to mention about Dathorn, after almost 2 yrs of service I have yet to experience any problems or long wait times for a trouble ticket response.

    I submitted my ticket tonight for the special and 5 mins later it was done.

    I always get fast responses and solutions from Dathorn and this is what makes Dathorn #1 in my books.... CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!!

    Post Bandwidth

    If everyone where to use double bandwidth, that would put a VERY HEAVY strain on the servers. If I was running a hosting biz, I would be reluctant to offer bandwidth that would surely further limit the number of clients a server can hold. I'm curious, what is the true upper limit that one server can handle in terms of bandwidth per month?

    First off, bandwidth is so under utilized and readily available that it doesn't even matter. Second, everyone using all their bandwidth simply isn't going to happen. That IS a FACT.

    Simple math based on a 10 Mbps connection:

    10Mbps*1byte/8bits*86400s/day*30.5day/month=

    Half-duplex Theoretical Throughput=3.3 Terabytes/month
    Full Duplex Theoretical=6.6 Terebytes/month

    Use a fat number of 30% for TCP/IP overhead and you still have 2.3 Terabytes/month outbound from the server. Divide that by 180 GB (double corporate plan) and you can put 12 people per server. Divide your outbound availability by 60 GB and you can put 38 people per server. I have no proof, but I'm guessing Andrew doesn't load only corporate customers on a single server. It's a nice balance somewhere in between.

    Just for fun, substitue a full-duplex 100 Mbps card and everything goes up by a factor of 10. Of course, actual system throughput (hard drives) would be a bottle neck long before you even get close to pushing a sustained 100 Mbps.

    Most people don't even use all their current bw. I updated and I know I wont ever use it all. Just nice to have extra "just in case".
