Bandwidth increases in both within the US and in bandwidth-starved
countries, but will the price ratio go down?

Currently, the $$$ our ISP pays to get 128 Kbps connectivity is
enough to get more than a dozen T1's in the US, and even a T3
perhaps. And people ask here why they can't get unlimited access for
$20 monthly.

On the other hand, labor costs are cheap --- among the
biggest customers for E1 lines to the US are offshore programming

So how about a bandwidth for workforce swap? :slight_smile:
