    Have you tried contacting HE directly? They can give you a quote for 1U colo. I live nearby and I know several people that host their personal servers there. They used to (or maybe still do) have pretty good offers for entire cabinets so I also know people that rent a whole rack and split the cost between them.

    Thank you for your reply. I contacted the official HE sales but never replied to my emails after he asked for the power parameters I needed. :|

  • @ito @Daniel15 Good morning! I also wouldn't mind getting a small personal server into HE. I have been emailing with HE and here is what HE offered:

    $0/month, 42U full cabinet, A&B (primary and redundant) 20 amp 208
    volt power, 1 Gbps on gige Internet connection.  To qualify for this get
    somebody that has their own ASN and address space and that knows how to
    run BGP and Hurricane Electric will give them a free cabinet with power
    and 1 Gbps on gige IP Transit if they install a real router (cisco,
    juniper, arista, extreme, mikrotik, ubiquiti) with 10GE interfaces and
    list themselves in peeringdb as being present in our data center.  Then
    get your friend to let you put a server or two in the free cabinet you
    arranged for them.  ;)  
    

    So I am interested either in becoming part of a group that's already doing this or in forming a new group to get started.

    Please feel free to be in touch! Maybe we can do something together! :)

    Thanks! Friendly greetings from Sonora, MX!

  • Has anyone reached out to HE to see if they are still offering this? Wasn't this only for a TunnelBroker service? I'll provide 10gb equipment to get this running otherwise.

  • interesting but it's too far from my country :(

    This is too good to be true! How long is it going to be free and how much for initial racking?

  • Hello!

    The offer came to me directly from a high level executive at HE. I've been joking around with HE for ten + years about some day becoming their customer. Thing is, I'm just an average guy who doesn't have a big internet business to provide financing for a cabinet. Also, my education is mostly in other fields than EE and CS. So I don't really have enough know how either.

    If somebody wants go in with me on the free cabinet I am delighted to talk with the kind gentleman at HE and see whether they still are okay with the deal. As for me, I'd love to colo one or maybe two 1U servers and have some lessons in how the router works.

    Today I am having trouble accessing LET because of hcaptcha. It makes me click the busses and the boats and then asks me to do it again instead of letting me in. If you post or PM and don't hear back, please try me on talk.lowendspirit.com.

    Happy Thanksgiving 🦃 and Happy BFCM! :)

    Best wishes and kindest regards,

    Tom

    Hey @zorker!

    Not tunnel broker. Full cabinet.

    If somebody is interested and shows me "bona fides" then I will be more than delighted to talk again with HE.

    Thanks for your interest! Friendly greetings! :)

    Hey! How are you doing! I don't see your PM. Please try again! Best wishes! :) Tom

  • Several guys sent me PMs. I believe I have replied to every PM I received. Best wishes! :)

  • @klikli said: This is too good to be true!

    I am guessing that HE wants to charge for transit. I don't know how much. :)

    How long is it going to be free and how much for initial racking?

    Don't know and don't know. :)

    Before too long I will talk with HE again, and I will be delighted to ask these questions! Before I bother HE again, however, I'm kind of looking for someone who at least meets the basic qualifications listed in the HE offer quoted above: has AS number, IPs, and a "real" router + willing to list in peeringdb as present at HE.

    What do you guys think? Who is in? :)

    Friendly greetings from New York City and Sonora, MX! 🗽🇺🇸🇲🇽🏜️

    Hi, I'm interested. Would you be open to telegram or discord exchanges?
    If so please pm me the username :)

  • Hi @ito!! I have Signal App but unfortunately no Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Telegram, Discord. If Signal works for you, please PM your number. If Signal doesn't work for you then we'll figure out something. Friendly greetings from the Sonoran Desert. 🏜️

  • Hello! One of the guys with whom I have been messaging says he spoke with HE last night (!) and was told the deal was still on. I have contact on Signal App with a couple of interested guys and also a phone conversation scheduled in a couple hours.

  • Update: This sounds really crazy, but it seems like on Monday I might be asking HE for three 42U cabinets! One guy wants two cabinets and doesn't particularly want to share except with me. The third cabinet is for the guys willing to share with each other and with me. BFCM is for crazy deals! Anyone else? Will we make it to four cabinets by Monday? :)

  • Why HE specifically?

    What about checking out aquanx? They are in Santa Clara, $39 month with power and 1gbit unmetered. Best bang for buck.

    Hi @doughnet!

    @doughnet said: Why HE specifically?

    Over the years, when I notice I seem to have a fast connection to some site in my web browser, I sometimes go and run a traceroute. Frequently HE shows up in the traceroute results. I haven't kept statistics, and I might not be even close to correct. But, from various locations and over the years, when I run traceroutes because I am happy with the connection, HE often is there.

    A second reason is that the guys at HE have been nice to me. When I email HE, I receive a prompt, sensible, and friendly reply.

    A third reason is that I know directly or indirectly a few guys already at HE. Seems like a friendly group!

    @doughnet said: What about checking out aquanx?

    Thanks for suggesting AquaNX! I will check. Do you know someone specific at AquaNX with whom I should talk?

    Do you by any chance know somebody in San Diego (down nearer to la línea (the line = US-Mexico border))?

    Thanks again @doughnet! Best wishes and kindest regards!

    Yeah The HE deal you have is definitely amazing. But anyone that needs a 1u Colo (or more) I was suggesting aquanx. They aren’t a huge company but I’ve had great uptime and great speeds.

    Their sales team was easy to work with. I live in the sf bay so I made arrangements to drop off my servers.
