Wow. The pricing of the local incumbent in .NL is public - you can find everything on www.kpn-wholesale.com. Here is a direct link to the pdf with wholesale-prices: http://www.kpn-wholesale.com/content/doc/WBA%20annex%204%20CM%20v1.3.pdf I guess it's about 50-100 times cheaper, but OTOH, we only put like ~3000 customers on an STM-4, so we need way more of them.
