What? As opposed to being overpaid to keep prices artificially high?

Come on. What's a fair price for a UK ISP service? Ans: Take a quoted price,
halve it, halve it again, and knock off a few thou' for good measure. I'll
bet PSINet UK Ltd charges higher prices than its equivalent operation in the
US. If I'm wrong, tell me about it.

UK prices are higher because most UK customers are too stupid to know the
difference. If PSINet UK can get away with it, good luck to you. Make the
most of it while you can.

We're paid to give high prices the kiss-off.
