Hi Thomas, 

By "small radios" I was meaning "small companies". It's why I am impressed
they can afford so expensive connections...

Cheers,

MAX

1st) I wouldnt call a radio with 1000 Listeners a small radio. That would be
a rather impressive one. IIRC there was no Radio using Icecast that has more
then 100 or 200 concurrent listeners.

2nd) One solution is sever housing or renting a ready server. Then you pay
for the housing + Traffic exceeding the traffic included in the basic fee.

As for Icecast2 I'd call radio stations that have an _average_ of more then
20 listeners medium and radio stations with more than 50 very successful.
(note this implies max listeners of 50/300 and down to 5/10 at night)

Just my 2cc

Regards

Thomas

PS: For listener Stats look at shoutcast.com - there you'll note an e^(1/x)
distribution of listener counts. Only few have more than 100/200 listeners.
