Nup, I'm calling your bluff.  If you want to argue that ISP costs are
really prohibitive, *you* provide some numbers.

Equipment costs are divided amongst users and spread across years
(capacity for concurrent users, data transfer, etc., are all a shared
load).  You sound like one of those who expect their clients to pay for
all their equipment costs within two months, and have a 1000% profit
margin.

Yes, I've seen those in computer industries who cry poor, but have a
Porche in the car park, and have essentially a lazy work life with hours
and working locations of their own choosing.
