Re: depending on the base price...

Bullshit. A connection maxed 24/7 at the rate set by the ISP is hardly "abuse" since they chose to offer that speed, and it does not incur "great cost". They never provide actual numbers, but we can be certain that they still make a nice profit off that usage even with a flat rate, because data actually costs them almost nothing.

You are right that MOST of the cost is the Plant, and building addtional capacity, replacing equipment and maintaince is the "GREAT COST".
I know you believe your mantra of "everyone else makes too much money, everyone else charges too much for services rendered, and everyone else demands too much profit".

So should I assume you choose to make as little as possble, charge below cost for your effort and ideas, and lend money for free?

Since most of the larger ISP's are publicly traded, a person such as yourself can easily research their annual reports and learn exactly where they make their sub 10% annual profit margin*. **

*Industry average nationwide for large ISP's, quite a bit below other similarly capital intensive, high cash flow-high expense industries.
** A far more important measure than exactly where each penny is made.
