        Why does BW cost so much?

It might make more sense to ask "Why is bandwidth so cheap (and getting cheaper so fast) in the US?" The simple answer is: Moore's law, competition (leading to a "fiber glut") and economies of scale.

If you're across an ocean from the US, you have to factor in the cost of running underwater cable.
