There are various prices offer from deifferent datacenter. What is the average price for 100mbit multihomed BW. I guess price can be between 1500 -2500. What do you think as reasobable and what are the prices are so cheap. Is fdcservers.net provide quality bw or are they overselling?.
I'm not sure if you can push the whole100 mbit @ FDC but I can tell you that multihomed 100 mbit with premium providers go for $3000-4000 / 100 mbit. The cheapest I have seen is $17 / mbit of HE.NET bandwidth and as far as I know, it's single homed.

Who provides BW for he.net, I mean who are the carriers for them.
I believe they are their own carrier with their own peers.

FDC openly admits to overselling. Most, if not all, other providers in $15-25-land are not overselling. Rather, they're taking advantage of peering arrangements and ONNET delivery to reduce overhead. Its reasonable to say that those of us who engage in this practice are not realizing the same gross margins as many Tier-1's.
Andy is correct, HE is its own provider with its own peers. Calling them "single homed" just because they're a Tier-2 and/or smaller than some of the bigger names (MCI, LVLT, etc.) is quite an uninformed statement.
