First of all, I am new to the forum and am unsure whether this is the right place to post my question. If this is not the right place, I would appreciate you letting me know the best website to ask this question. I am a business person seeking the advice of those who know way more about this stuff than I ever will. I am grateful for any assistance you can provide.
I'm starting a startup accelerator and trying to spec and purchase sufficient bandwidth for a new facility. I have quotes from two different providers at different levels of bandwidth but the prices are wildly different. For example, one is providing 150Mbps bandwidth for $1100/Mo. The other is providing 150Mbps for $250/mo. There must be some profound reason why one is 4x the price.
I'm talking to each of the company representatives and asking them directly about this disparity, but - given that these people are selling - it would be useful to know from an independent source.:
- what's the likely difference between the two offerings?
- when is 150Mbps not equal to 150Mbps? i.e. is there likely to be a real difference in the end user experience with vendor A's 150Mbps vs. vendor B's 150Mbps? If so, why?
- what questions would you be asking these vendors if you were in the market to buy new bandwidth?
