If you want to maintain this section I think you need to tighten up the
wording to unambiguously exclude costs incurred in providing the potential
registrant's own network infrastructure. Perhaps use a phrase like "paid to
ISPs for connectivity services".

I think that this kind of market price and access regulation is a bit blunt
though, however whatever value is used in place of the $8k.
