If an apartment rents for $15 per month, that is $180 per year with $15 (one month) going to the broker who leases it... http://www.earthlink.net/home/broadband/staticip/upgrade/ Special savings: Current EarthLink DSL customers can add a static IP address to their service for just $15 more per month*! ==== A /8 is equivalent to 16,777,216 apartments (cyber hotels)... At $15 per month, an ISP has a monthly revenue of $251,658,240 and $3,019,898,880 per year. One month to "the broker" would be $251,658,240.
