I need to know the cheapest streamhost out there.

I like my streamhost, but their price is too high. With the cloud, it seems that there is a proliferation of cheaper and cheaper streamhosts. I'd like to mention these deals when I renegotiate my streamhost deal.

So, how low can they go for 50 slots at 96 or 128kbps?

There is an old saying, "you get what you pay for" cheapest does not equate to up time and and good customer service.

I'm not changing to the cheap streamhost. I'm looking for the market rate, so as to renegotiate with my very good streamhost.

You can check out the rating of hosts here:

http://www.broadcastingworld.com/review ... m-hosting/
and here
http://www.radiotoolbox.com/hosts

If you don't care if you stream buffers and goes off the air, you can probably find a host that will give you 10,000 listeners at 128k for $5 US a month.
