I considered co-locating, but my current plan calls for up to eight 
servers.  At about $150 per server, that's $1200 a month.  Since we're 
paying $150 per month for 256k DSL service that we can upgrade to at 
least 758kbps for about $400 a month, it just wasn't a good option for 
us.  Your needs are probably different, though.
