So are you wanting to be your own isp or maybe just make your own hot spot?

I really do not understand the question. The post looks like a one made by these "troll account" created by a program and used to break into forums, to post. Let's be positive and consider that it is not however.

In order to resell bandwidth any company has to run its own ASN, network and infrastructure (routers, switches) to have upstreams to any ISPs and to run BGP.

By reselling bandwidth what do you mean because no one will want to buy only bandwidth.

I'm also not quite sure what you are after, but you'll need deep pockets before any provider starts talking to you seriously about such an idea.

I'm guessing is talking about becoming a bandwidth broker. I'm continuing to venture out here and assume he thinks this would have a low cost start, however he is not factoring in that most brokers he would be competing against provide/have a 24/7 NOC and already have established relations and specific volume levels with carriers. As your bandwidth commit size increases your cost does go down and in order to be competitive with some of these larger companies you would need a good deal of $$$.

Indeed you will need BGP level routers and probably some sort of Colocation. Good luck with this as BGP routers to run the lines/connection through will be in the $XX,XXX.00 to $xxx,xxx.00 range as far as cost. You will also need to probably know router configuration, security/firewall configuration and proper knowledge to manage this. You will need to find providers and make some sort of contractual agreement.

Optionally if you plan to run it to a business location then you will need fiber lines ran to your place of occupation and you will still need the things I mentioned. Also, Arin or Ripe allocations to route your traffic to your customers. Arin requires at least 2 /22s I believe, but don't quote me as we have applied and are in the accepting process with justification.

I don't recommend this for anyone not at the Datacenter level already. Too much to manage and you may as well be a Datacenter to get into this or at least be providing massive Colocation to turn a profit after expenses.

Im more on the programming side of things,thanks for explaining to me without racism it makes me understand that if I want to ride this biz for good Id need to partner with one of my friends from Systems Engineering.I honestly have too many but is fun to see how they end up doing other things I dont know why/

As business matter yes feel this is more for DC type of people

I believe it was a accurate question and realistic. He probably didn't know it was going to be so much work as he is still trying to find his niche in the hosting world. But I understand your point of view.

What exactly are you trying to resell? You can not resell raw bandwidth.

Well someone who is in to hosting always can somehow attempt to do everything at some time ,the first thing that holds me back is not my capacity to do it,neither money but is the timing which I dont have now but somehow I guess all along with expirience in the future it wont be that much time demanding and sure Ill have more money to do it better,but please dont go away without living links to the best bandwidth providers

thank u

and..........you can call me however you want it Im not paranoid but is so good to tell you Im a freaking girl
