Indeed.  2meg up is ... squat.  Especially if we have several ppl
using the link at once.... which is the goal.  Granted, if use of the
facilities is governed similar to what Jay used to have (colo on a
limitted pipe), then that's... fine.  But I don't think that's the
goal here.

If someone is looking for a fat pipe and not fiddling with colo stuff,
VPS's with unmetered 10mbit can be had for about $45, unmetered
100mbit for prolly $120.  Full servers can also be had fairly
inexpensively (compared to numbers pushed around here).

As a local colo, this has much more potential than someone just
needing any old server on a very fat pipe.
