Bandwidth, ISP, good?


Well everyone, there was once a time when my ISP provided enough to suit my needs. Unfortunately, this may have come to an end.

Using Linux, I am hosting a game server, and I am extremely concerned about bandwidth. I fear my ISP can not provide an upload suitable for my needs. I do not need a optical service, but 300Mbps is not suitable for the goals I have set with my Linux box.

Using Redhat Linux 9 under a custom built Smoothwall Linux Router, I am in need of a bandwidth close to 500Mbps which can provide a reaction to incoming data at a hyper fast rate. I know much about my own system, but when it comes to the Telco or cable providers, I am very stupid. Thus, I am asking for help and information. Much of anything which would prove helpful to this topic is most grateful. Thanks in advance.

You do know that you would be paying like $5,000 a month for a line like that. It seems like fiber may be needed.

OPS!!! LOL no no no. Not 300Mbps, 300Kbps. (kick me)

I am interested in 1Mbps upload, but would be satisfied with 500Kbps, however the quick response time is necessary.
