One phpBB site (http://phpbb.ulead.com.tw/EN/index.php) that I frequent daily has nearly 23,000 members and there are hundreds of posts daily, so size is not a problem: OK, their server is in Taiwan and sometimes there are speed difficulties there when there are more than 70 or 80 users on-line at the same time.

My own SMF site (http://www.cypenv.org/smf/index.php) was originally phpBB, but I much prefer SMF for better flexibility and security. It is interchangeable with phpBB so, if your host server supports one, it supports the other. In fact, you can switch from phpBB to SMF in about 10 minutes: there is a script for that purpose! Of course, mine is highly specialised and has few members (about 65, if I remember correctly). This has cost me nothing extra to have the php and MySQL facilities.

Thanks, useful to know. In fact I have just checked and my ISP now offers an SMF package as well (I think that is new).

If I had a lot more time, and even more inclination, I would actually put more effort into setting up a proper website and maybe a forum on it too. It is daft really, as I am paying for stuff like having a MySQL database and loads of disk space and I am just not using any of these things! Admittedly, it isn't much each year, but still....

Nietrunner (deliberate spelling there) seems to have a huge problem with their routing. Its happened before and it will happen again.

On mine Pete, I'm paying $28.95 AUS a year for 5000MB webspace and 100000MB bandwidth/month. It also has fantastico, cPanel with phpBB and SMF. Am a big SMF fan as its alot easier to handle and better built in security.
