2.7TBybte is roughly 9 mbit/s sustained traffic.
- 1mbit/s/month of transit is $1 wholesale now in London and Amsterdam through Hurricane Electric -->9 dollar
- If you would work with a day and night rythm for the traffic, where the average peak is about twice the average--> 18 dollars. --> do understand that an ISP like Telenet will use peering too, which would result in a lower bandwidth bill.
- If you buy the traffic up front from a hosting company 20 euro per Terabyte retail --> 54 euro
- If you need to buy the traffic because you went over the traffic you bought up front it's 50 euro per Terabyte retail. --> 135 euro
So the top downloader in Belgium is most likely still profitable to Telenet... though marginally
