    Assuming our pilot project is a success, it looks like we may need more
    bandwidth for our needs, as a plain old 8Mbit/488K broadband link may
    not do the job.

    The end system will not be 'mission critical' so moving to E1s would be
    overkill so I guess I have to consider SDSL or a hosted solution - the
    latter is the subject of this hour's question from me - would any kind
    soul point me in the direction of a UK hosting/co-lo service provider
    that is Asterisk friendly. The other option I guess is to use a virtual
    PBX solution from someone like - any comments.

    With that question out of the way I will leave you in peace for a while,
    but many thanks to those who have already replied to earlier questions.

    "plain old 8Mbit/488Kb broadband"? LOL
    Most colocation providers should be suitable - I don't know of any who's
    service would be inappropriate for hosting an asterisk PBX. Do you have
    any specific requirements which would make a company more or less
    "asterisk friendly" ?

    The only thing I can think of would be reliability/update/support (not
    specific to asterisk) and connectivity to other networks
    (upstreams/clients) to minimise latency?

  3. And of course bandwidth costs.

    The last time I looked, the cheapest hosted service (bandwidth-wise) was
    the reg-123 one (which it looks like they've finally renamed, seemed a
    bit silly calling it Linux 2000 etc. when the servers were running FreeBSD.

    I've no idea how good the service is like (never used them).

  4. are you running any specific / custom software on your asterisk system,
    or is it all 'standard' stuff? - because if so, a hosted PBX would be

    That said, Loud-n-clear ( and NCUK ( both do
    colo and are very well connected to a company like mine, for the
    asterisk bit.
