While the "share of revenue" argument is bogus (as John's cup-of-coffee
analogy made clear), you do have a point with the cost-per-IP-address
Annual Fee Max CIDR $/IP
$500 /22 0.49
$1000 /20 0.24
$2000 /18 0.12
$4000 /16 0.06
$8000 /14 0.03
$16000 /12 0.02

Then again, the vast majority of businesses have discounts for volume
purchases. I note that even LARIAT does this. You charge $60 for
1000Kbps, but $80 for 1500Kbps. Shouldn't that be $90 for 1500Kbps, to
ensure everyone pays the same price per Kbps?

I don't think human beings in general are wired that way.
Politics and religion are just like software and hardware. They all suck,
the documentation is provably incorrect, and all the vendors tell lies.
