    Unmetered gigabit, nice! Price is higher than average, but when it's hooked up to that...

    Oh, I'm sure your service is top-notch. My statement was meant to be a reflection of my mental processes upon seeing this offer. First I see $10/mo for 384MB RAM, which seems high. But then I notice the network, and it makes more sense. I'm sure your support is excellent too, and I do like a 7-day refund policy. That's an amazing network in Germany, BTW - lots of top-notch peering.

    Thank you for your kind words, our new network is much more reliable and speedy than our old one. If you are interested in the 7-day test, feel free to send me a private-message and I might be able to arrange a test-VM for you, for free.

    The "micro" plan "unmetered" bandwidth is limited to 1 mbps of "fair usage average".

    That's 328 GB of bandwidth per month, not exactly what you would expect from an unmetered service.

    It isn't limited, it's a recommended level of bandwidth where there won't be any issues. Clients are contacted if there are (which is very rare).

    A good example would be a client with 16 Micro instances, who has used ~50TB total this month. 

    This is all as documented in the fair usage policy itself here : http://afterburst.com/network-policy

    Hm. What would be the most bandwidth I could sustain 24/7 with one of the micro plans?

    I am genuinely interested in the offer.

    The most we can guarantee is what's listed in the fair usage policy, but generally it's more. I can't give you a concrete figure as it will undoubtedly vary - but if ever there was an issue, we would contact you about it.

    Would be acceptable to sustain 50up/50down mbps without any spikes at all?

    I don't want to contract a service just to get asked to leave the next week, that's why I am asking.

    We aim to keep overall utilisation per node below 100-150mbps average, so there is always plenty of available bandwidth for the occasional large burst in usage.

    As such a VM using 100x its fair usage policy would not be acceptable and we would contact that client to discuss it. We're flexible,  but not that flexible.

    So it's more like 100mbps = 12.5MB/s = 1 TB per day? 30TB/month @ 1Gps and afterwards @ 1MBps.

    Those are our targets for our host nodes, not a single VPS. 

    A single VPS would not be able to use 30TB per month.
