>From the numbers I've seen, that's fairly common. Most of the cost is fixed regardless; if you want, say, 10Mbps, they'll probably have to set you up a DS3 circuit, which is capable of handling up to 45Mbps. Most bandwidth providers have to go through a local telco to get the DS3, and it'll cost them the same to have that circuit regardless of how much it's being used. If you need more bandwidth, hey, the circuit's already there, it's just a matter of turning up the "bandwidth" knob. Since the extra bandwidth is cheap (as compared to the costs of the actual circuit provisioning) it's to their benefit to sell you as much bandwidth as they can, because they'll probably make more profit that way.
