Industry practice for BGP costs - one time or fixed/monthly?

Hello everyone

I have been aggressively looking for deals in servers in Europe for
anycasting. One thing which surprises me is the "setup costs" for BGP. Few
providers quoted additional $50-100 which looks OK but a few of them quoted
as high as $150 *extra every month* just for having BGP (no full routing
table, but just default route pointing). Is there's any technical logic
behind such heavy costs? I mean at the end of day we are all talking at
layer 3 and thus it does not involves any hard connection/physical work.
What other members pay for BGP setup costs?
