T3 or not to T3
I've been doing a lot of reading and thinking on what the best solution is for an application that initially requires approximately 15Mbps outgoing and 8Mbps incoming (as viewed from my router), and talks with 500000 unique hosts daily (i.e. has fairly wide coverage of the net). The application involves at least thirty machines, so colocation is likely to be cost-prohibitive. A single T3, or frac T3 isn't an option because there isn't a single provider that I can trust for the availability we want. Even ignoring availability, I seriously doubt that any provider can consistently fill a single customer's T3 pipe these days.
