8.0 Bandwidth and Overages

A. Unmetered Servers

Unmetered Bandwidth may be purchased in increments of 10, 20, 50 and 100Mbps. Your selected level of bandwidth will be capped at your servers network adapter as well as the switch port you are connected to. The server will obtain your selected full port speed (10, 20, 50, or 100Mbps) 24hr/7days per week and will not accrue bandwidth overages charges as you will not be able to exceed the allotted bandwidth amount.

B. Standard Metered Servers

On our standard server offerings, you will purchase an allotted amount of bandwidth for your server and you will be billed based on your monthly use. SleepyEngineers.com will calculate your bandwidth use each month based on your 95th percentile usage. SleepyEngineers.com will take your 95th percentile and then convert the amount to a total GB transferred for the billing period.

Example: If you use 3Mbps on the 95th percentile each day that equals approximately 1000GB total data transferred. 95th percentile billing model is calculated using the following formula: Server bandwidth is checked every 5 min and this totals 8640 checks in a 30 day period, remove the top 5% (highest usage polls) and this leaves 8208 checks. If the remaining highest usage polls fall below 3mbps there will be no overage charges for the billing period.

If you have exceeded the allotted bandwidth for your server plan in the current billing period, you will be charged $.30 per GB over the allotted server plan amount. The bandwidth overage charge will be applied to your account for immediate payment.
