Joe,

    You have to look at economies of scale.  A small to medium sized
business cannot afford to colocate or purchase more reliable bandwidth.


That is utter bullshit.  Maybe they can't afford to colocate with Exodus
but
there are definitely many places that a small business can EASILY afford
to
colocate.

    How many medium sized businesses (lets say under 50 or 100 people) do
you know that are willing to or can afford colocation.  Many of these
companies have only one server on prem.  For customers such as this, they
not only need a way to host a small webpage (receiving a hit a day if they
are lucky) but also need internet access.  It is customers like this for
whom DSL is appropriate.  I should have been more clear on the case of the
company needing internet access.  The problem with going with some of these
fly buy night hosting operations is that some are using DSL themselves!

    I don't know much about the colocation market in the US.  But I do know
that it is difficult to find a reasonable colocation facility here in Canada
for under $500-1000 a month (I may be wrong here, I have not looked at
colocation pricing in a while).
