Re: there is a lot wrong here, but you seem to be agreeing ??

Want to host a server? Do it in a data center, for $5 per month. You'll get a gigabit connection now, and it will be more reliable than using either the Knology connection you're posting from or the GFiber connection you for some reason despise.

Where/which data center can I put my server for $5/month with gigabit speeds, or use one of their (real) servers?

I'd even take a VPS if it could do a gigabit..

It's a VPS. DigitalOcean, I use them for work and we have multiple "droplets" in their SF data center.

Bandwidth is cheap from most datacenters, but memory and storage are not. I got a perfectly good computer laying around to run a Minecraft server and it will only cost me sub $5 in electrical costs per month, but getting the same memory, cpu, and storage would cost me hundreds per month from a datacenter.

Depends on the data center. And your "perfectly good computer" had a cost to buy in the first place.
