I presume you're looking for something on a budget? You need to provide more details like the power you need, network and details about that etc.

You won't be getting within the M25 & 5A for £150/mo.

Quarter racks usually start around £250/mo with 1A/2A and then standard pricing for amperage is about £40-£70/A depending on the DC.

So you'd be looking at about £400 at least.

Gbit port is pretty standard for rack space these days, it'll be the CDR which is what matters anyway.

Is there a reason you want within the M25 other than bandwidth carriers going from Gosport to Sheffield latency wise is naff all.

Thanks for that, there is no real reason I want it within the M25 outside the badwidth and being able to get to the DC in a reasonable time in case of a major problem.

This has given me real food for thought thanks. I might have to consider Madienhead or Manchester to get a better price  :D

Still both pretty expensive locations... I'd use Nottingham or further down towards Fareham/Gosport for your budget.

@httpzoom are you still looking for colo? me too

in the south, it seems that there's nothing less than £200 / per qtr. but you can get a full rack for £750-800. maybe 4 people sharing a full rack ?

If you are looking for colocation, I would recommend the Iomart facility in Maidenhead, we started in their data center in November last year and we have had no issues what so ever.
