The definition of "dedicated" is very vague.

For it to be truely "dedicated" you would need 100mbps to every internet user otherwise your sharing with others bandwidth.

What you want is "guaranteed bandwidth". Ie you can do 100mbps 24/7 guaranteed.

That's true, but with OVH it's very likely you will be able to burst to your full port speed whenever required.

I was surprised to find out that a dedicated server doesn't necessarily imply that the connection to it is dedicated. It's possible that even a dedicated server may share its connection with other servers. So, how can I know for sure which server has a truly dedicated connection if I decide to rent one from ovh.co.uk?
