I think what he's trying to say is that cost is an issue *because* the
business doesn't hang in the balance, and therefore the current pricing is
an impediment to adoption. I don't really agree, because for all but the
tiniest ISPs, $2250 is a tiny amount of their operating budget, and the cost
of a couple decent CPE routers.
