This was my idea when I started Torservers. It quickly turned out that
bandwidth goes way cheaper in bulk, and extra on-demand bandwidth costs
extraordinarily much.

Exactly :-) I haven't heard back from 2host, FDC, UnmeteredServers.com,
RapidSpeeds.com, Securedservers.com and several others yet I don't even
bother to list here.

The founder of codero, who donated the 100mbps "wau" exit told me he
could put us on Gbit for $100 a month (the rest being a donation). The
odd thing is that Tor doesn't do much more than 200kb/s on it at the
moment, even though my tests (wget, Debian torrent) show that it can
indeed hit 11MB/s easily.

If anyone has some ideas on how to find the bottleneck, come by on IRC
(oftc.net #torservers) or XMPP moritz@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
