A bit of server history:
From 2006 till 2012 we had a rented Windows Server 2003 server located in Frankfurt, Germany. With a connection of 13 MB/s down and 9 MB/s up - which was really enough for NOLF, Counterstrike 1.6 and Teamspeak2 and some Websites. However it was a way too expensive to pay every month 27 (~34 $) do I decided to take it down. Since 2017 we are back online with 4 Servers, since private internet connections became so good, I'm hosting it from home. This is also needed, because the nolf server needs to be hosted on 32Bit architecture to remain bug-free.
