Assuming you mean 30 dollars per megabit per second for one month.

1 month of 1Mbps = 30days/month*24hours/day*3600sec/hour seconds/month of 1Mbps = 2,592,000 sec/month of 1Mbps = 2,592,000 megabits per month = 324,000 megabytes per month.

324,000 megabytes cost 30 dollars, so 1 megabyte costs 0.0000925 dollars = 0.00925 cents

So, the cheapest 1 megabyte could possibly be is 0.00925 cents. In reality, we are not using 100% of available bandwidth to push files. This doesn't count P2P network traffic, TCP overhead, never maxing our bandwidth, etc. In reality, we might be using more like 10% of the available bandwidth for actual file upload.

So, 0.00925 cents is the cheapest 1 megabyte could cost, but in reality, it's probably more like a tenth of a cent.

I need you to figure something out by monday. At 30 dollars per megabit, how much does it cost in bandwidth to push out 1 megabyte. I need this calc for negotiations w umg.
