Probably the best colo you get in canada is
http://www.prioritycolo.com/. They are at 151 Front street with 3x
100mbit connections to the major peers. The website is pretty bad
because they don't activly look for customers but its worth any effort
to get some shelf place there if you ask me.
Currently i pay 99cad for a xp2000+ machine ( theirs ) with 300gb of
traffic (50cent per extra gb compared to 15$ at magma). They even let
me use their KVM so that I could manually install gentoo from here in
I run several game servers on the machine and I myself get a ping of
13ms to the machine ( i have sympatico dsl ultra at home ). Thats not
bad at all if you consider that a roundtrip to toronto is around
800km. The people on the servers go on and on about the amazing pings
Hope this helps.
