but really, the 'cost' here is  the same as a local wireless user for
air-time traffic, then 1$/mbps to ship the bits off their network
across the internet, right?

So... same cost regardless of 'roaming' or 'local user', at the bit
level, right? Perhaps some charge to do the LNP (or equivalent to
find/locate the handset in the world) lookup but that can't be
10-15$/mb equivalent is it?
