Re: Why do some ISP's have bandwidth quotas?

Why is it that the US has ISP's with either no quotas or obscenely high ones while countries like Australia have ISP's with ~12gb quotas? Is there some kind of added cost running a non US ISP?

The combination of an English language society, its distance from content of interest to those speaking said language and countries sheer lack of population density outside of a few towns (sorry cities ;-).
