General ISP Question - What do you do with your unneeded bw?

Mon Apr 30, 2012 7:49 pm

Hello!

So I'm not sure if Ill get yelled at for the slightly off topic question. However, I wanted to start a discussion and learn what other ISP's are doing with their un-used upload/tx bandwidth. As many ISP's, we have a fiber connection from our upstream provider. Ours is 100Mb, where we use the majority of our download bw, we use just 5% or our upload bw.

What do you do with your extra tx bandwidth? We pay for it, we should be able to make a profit on it just as we do our download bw. Are there any services out there that would pay for it? Maybe hosting mirror servers, or other download servers? Anybody have any suggestions, or what do you do?

Thanks!

find a radio station that you can provide streaming to - either comp it to them by asking for advertising in return, or just charge them cost on it.

Good topic. We have 125mb of never been used upload. I've often wondered if we shouldn't be hosting an adult entertainment site of some kind, but highly doubt the owners would ever approve that. The looks on their faces might just be worth putting a proposal together though! :)
