Re: More BW, Less Taxes

From what I've seen, there isn't a simple answer. In places where bandwidth
is exorbantantly expensive (such as outside the United States), simply over
provisioning isn't an acceptable answer.
In Europe it's becoming cheaper too - especially to major cities.
Why does BW cost so much?
My personal feeling is "because people pay the price". This can be seen
from talks with a few carriers who are bringing up additional long-haul
fiber capacity, and when asked how that will affect the pricing, they just
say "We'll stay ahead of the competition".
