 Do you have any Idea of the cost of a T3 from overseas to the US?
(or even the cost of a local loop T3 outside the US)

 Hint: A T3 from Tel-Aviv to Chicago NAP is 6 figures (US$) a _month_
And this is after de-regulation	 dropped the price of a fiber link to under
satellite link price(2-3 years ago a fiber terrestrial link was ~ 3 times a
satellite link with an minimum RTT of ~ 550 msec ;-( )
