VPS for mirrors, high BW - low resources

Hello,
do you know a VPS (or can offer) with a reasonable cheap yearly price that has a lot of BW.
I need to deliver custom Android ROMs (so 100% open source and legal) to users with direct download (with a landing page before that, hoping to cover costs with ads).

I wouldn't need any special hardware really, it will just run nginx+ 1 php server just to handle downloads, so even 64MB of RAM should be enough, even 1 CPU core shouldn't be a problem. What's the power needed to handle statics files downloads? I suppose close to 0? Consider that the downloads waves are just gonna happen at specific days of a week/month.

Can a very low hardware resources make it up for the high BW usage?

I think at least 2TB are needed.
Am I asking too much? I don't know if BW costs more than resources so this might be a stupid request :P

    You may want to check BuyVM Storage plan if $7/m is affordable for you.

    EDIT: for a low yearly price, you may want to check 2host $25/yr plan. Search on LEB. (but don't expect too much on net speed.)

    Trying to cover part of the costs, is this better put? :P

    I think 5GB of space is more than enough.

    BuyVM looks solid, the thing is those $7/m I suppose are for the RAM and the **huge ** storage, I was looking for something with a very low storage and very low RAM to lower the price

    EDIT: 2host looks exactly what I need, I wonder the speed :|

    $18 per year = 50GB Storage

  • BuyVM yearly may be what you want. Bandwidth overages are dirt cheap at somewhere around $2/TB. Get one in BUF and LAS and use Rage4 to ghetto-geodistribute.

    30TB means unmetered 100Mbit Port right? Price really impressed.

    @sandro yes

    dedicated or shared?

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro The bandwidth is shared with other clients, though the server is not on a 100 port. It is 2 x 1Gbit

    Example client usage from last month: http://cl.ly/image/1G2Q0z400O3I

    Isn't possible to get a higher port with lower BW allowance?

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro that should be possible. If you want to open a support ticket we can work something out with you.

    That's more than 100Mbit up :) Do you have a different plan than shared 100Mbit unmetered? I got around 30MB/s as well :D

    Actually @Fliphost I think I changed my mind, it would be better to have an unmetered plan so that every user can download but at "lower" speeds. I'll sign up soon :D

    Slower download? People will take a different mirror. Just do fast downloads and when it runs out of bandwidth just leave it suspended until next month.

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro Just let me know if you have any questions

    I don't get what you mean, maybe you misunderstood. I was referring to @PcJamesy that posted a test file that got him and me a faster upload than 100mbit so I asked if maybe he was on a plan with 1Gbps maybe.

    Or maybe I got it completely wrong? 30TB per month is not with unmetered port? You can actually achieve faster speed and being limited to 30TB/m ?

    Sorry for all those questions @Fliphost

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro Gbit is a paid upgrade. Extra $2 per month. Still limited to 30TB

    so IT'S NOT 100mbit unmereted, cause you answered yes to @msg7086's question

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro 100mbit unmetered ends up being around 30TB so yes it is

    I guess what he means is that you get unmetered if you choose to use 100m port, but you won't get more bandwidth (30TB ≈ 100m unmtrd) if you upgrade to G port, only faster burst speed.

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @msg7086 is correct

    @johnlth93 it's an unmetered 100mbit port. It's roughly about 30TB.

    Hi @Fliphost, I am also interested in your high bandwidth plan. On your website I can only find plans with very low included traffic. How can I find details on the 30TB plan?

    "unmetered" 100mbit can only transmit 12 TB of data a month. Not 30TB

    Wrong. 100 mbps is 32.85 TB per month. You could even think as 32.85*2=65.7 since you could upload and download at the same time. Those are only theoretical numbers, obviously.

    Also, another vouch for @Fliphost. Really good service and prices, you can't go wrong with them.

    I would be very interested in the 256MB RAM/50GB/30TB plan. What's the price on it, if it's still available?

  • @revnja said:

    $18/year or $10 per 6 months, according to their WHMCS.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

  • @mpkossen with unmetered 100 mbps?

  • @finlandvps said:
    mpkossen with unmetered 100 mbps?

    Well, in SolusVM it says 29.3TB bandwidth, so basically, yeah.

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

  • Hello @Fliphost, I'm ready to buy today the plan we discussed, is it still available with the same specs and location? I was also wondering if you have a location closer to East coast.

  • Awmusic12635Awmusic12635 Member, Provider

    @sandro Yes it is still in our whmcs assuming you mean the storage50 plan. We only have this in dallas atm.
