My language probably came across a little harshly. My point was that if you look at global transit prices they are typically a few dollars a Mbps in the west. That pricing is not universal across the globe.

We saw large scale "streaming events", e.g. day long sports event broadcast on the Internet, had significant (localised) impact to the Transit costs and if they were permanent (e.g. your average 1 Mbps / user at peak time) they would have made a significant impact to the bottom-line.
