Re: A root-server for about 30EUR for an exitnode?

Actually, the German Strato AG also has switched their dedicated servers, starting at EUR 70 a month, to an unlimited traffic plan. No fair-use or similar downsides. I'd just like to know what the bandwidth per switch is... and how many servers share that bandwidth.

I don't know and I doubt they will tell you. On the other hand Strato is one of the major hosting players on the German market. I'm convinced bandwidth will be sufficient for a tor node running on apples and oranges hardware.

More expensive than IP traffic will be ISP's personnel expenses for a tor exit gw's abuse handling.

Why? They just have to point the finger at the server's owner.

even each case takes only about 15min average, it becomes expensive.

That's not much work to do. I bet they have standardized emails for such cases.

German police do not use email for their inquiries. Usually the letter from police arrives first as fax and a few days later in writing. Not to mention they expect the answer pointing to me the same way. The only known exception accepting email communication I'm aware of has been a German secret service.
