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?
Depending upon the country you're in, that is a possibility. Some countries have either state-run or monopolistic telcos, so there is little or no competition to force prices down over time.
Even in the US, there is a huge variability in the price of telco services from one part of the country to another.
