Well, there could perhaps be another solution, like running your own
XAPI server - the minutely diffs are usually less than 100Kb, so the
required bandwidth to download from planet.openstreetmap.org would be
less than 2 Kb/second in average.
But the question is - how large would be the planet database on disk
(how large would it get once you import the planet dump)
I guess the database would be in order of tens of gigabytes, probably
over 100 GB ...
And how much memory you need on the machine to run some reasonable
queries (if 4 GiB works for main XAPI server, would it be usable on
machine with only 1 GiB of memory?)
