3z.ca runs on somewhat higher side of things on random products. Don't think they are in Peer1 either.Well if you look in the dedi section @ 3z.ca your price does not seem unreasonable considering its RTO..
Yup exactly! I would think 3z.ca is more a budget provider considering they were offering colo for $30/mo on WHT just last year.. It's the same DC that scratch telecom built.. and the dedi's are also lower in specs compared to what netnub is offering and it is not RTO..3z.ca runs on somewhat higher side of things on random products.

There is certainly a Peer1 premium. The have their own network and PoPs all over. Really in my prior experience is a great network in the US and Canada. Nothing wrong with 3Z, just not the same sort of outfit at all.
Unsure of the merger/buyout, but Cogeco was offering $600 million to buy Peer1 as of December. Something else to keep in mind when dealing with Peer1.
Not too sure the cost to colo in peer1 but I think it's a $200/mo minimum for a 4U not sure how many AMPS or network you get..
