I think your math is off? 11,000,000 / 100 == 110,000 / 12 == 9,166 month

right? Did you mean '200 hostmasters at 5500/month' ?

you'd likely also have to put into the mix the cost of infrastructure,
right? I'm not sure what current arin/ripe/apnic folk have deployed, I
imagine some servers (100k of gear? replaced every 3yrs?) and
routing/switching devices (2M replaced every 3 yrs), and link costs.
