RackHigh Doubles Bandwidth offering on all Dedicated Servers

Apr 14, 2014 - RackHigh, the Middle East based, on-demand dedicated server provider, is known for offering premium services at affordable prices, and now with greater bandwidth allowances on base server configurations, those prices are even more attractive.

As a result of the growing diversity of computing devices, an increase of advanced multimedia and video traffic, faster and more widely available broadband accessibility, and many other contributing factors, global IP traffic is forecast to be 1.3 zettabytes by 2016 (Cisco). Consequently, RackHigh has also experienced significant hikes in overall bandwidth usage.

“In just 12 months, we've experienced a 38% increase in bandwidth usage,” said Shafiq Ur Rehman, CEO for RackHigh. “In order to help resellers and other clients compensate for the new normal in bandwidth usage, we've upgraded standard bandwidth allowances by one hundred percent.”
