Yep we could literally peg the meter at 100 and leave it there. That's a lot of porn.
It's also about as premium and redundant as bandwidth can get. Youcould blow up half the building and we would still be up.
Cheaper isusally metered or "shared".
Well, with 100Mbps line it's only ~30TB you can move over a month
However if you look at the rates "cloud companies" are charging for bandwidth it really starts to look like that you'll have to go with colonization if you have even a little bit more traffic than your average ecommerce site or you are hosting a lot of videos etc.
It's funny that Amazon advertises 99.999999999% durability for S3.. now I have to wonder what's the 0.000000001% that prevents it from being 100%?
Or if it's one of those "statistics" for marketing purposes. They charge $0.15 per GB you transfer. If you buy 100Mbps for $1k/month, that would price it to $0.03 per transferred GB. Amazon will also start to charge from uploads so it's kinda double whammy because if you buy let's say 100TB, you'll have to pay first $0.14 per GB for that space, then you have to pay for the bandwidth you use when you upload the 100TB you just paid for. Now you are only in the situation where you start to actually pay for bandwidth other people will use. S3 ain't so cheap anymore...
