Re: Current street prices for US Internet Transit
Are you saying that if something costs more in Singapore or Australia than the US, then the companies selling that product here in the US for less must be selling below cost?You can peg a 100Mb/s FTTH line (which costs about $65 USD/month on a 1 year contract) from Chunghwa Telecom in Taipei 24/7, as long as the majority of your traffic stays on the island of Taiwan... If you start doing tons of P2P to Japan, Korea or the Chinese mainland their AUP department will crack down rather quickly. Geographical considerations like the cost of subsea cables certainly affect this a lot.
I know of a Fijiian ISP paying $40,000/month for a DS3 on Southern Cross.
"We will be offering services of 10 megabits, 20 megabits and 100 megabits by mid-July. The cost of the service will be lower than both Japan's 100-megabit service and Korea's 13-megabit service," Chunghwa Telecom Chairman Hochen Tan said in a statement.
According to information the company provided, network access for a 100 megabit FTTH service is available for the equivalent of NT$2,370 (US$70) per month in Japan. In South Korea, a 13 megabit service currently costs the equivalent of NT$1,796 per month.
"Our network-access fees will be around NT$1,796 for the 10-megabit service, NT$2,000 for the 20-megabit service, and just over NT$2,300 for 100-megabit service," Hochen told CNA on Tuesday.
