IPv4 smaller than /24 leasing?

Startups, people serving areas where there aren't a ton of people, etc. 

I'm sure they'd love to have /24s, but ARIN is out of them and the market is too pricey for most of these guys.

What's the business model, if you have less than 120 customers? Selling 
value-add services on top of moving the packets? Or just be in a country 
where cost-of-everything is so cheap that you can make a profit on 120 
customers at $20/mo? 

And hundreds? Is that "in the US", or "worldwide"?
