As the admin of instance and who runs high traffic service (mirror) in Korea, yeah it's fucking outrageous. Korean ISPs charge really high and the actual network quality is really bad, especially when connect to outside of this country, even worse to Europe. Also see:

I get it the load vid services is putting on the ISP infra is massive but I don't think its going to work in the ISP favour in the long run. Eventually enough companies are going to say no.

Yep. But your utilisation is factored into the price. If you are doing 300% expectued util and so is everyone else on your street then thats a big issue and the ISP can't tripple your bill cos you will just leave.

Leave to where? To another ISP who has the same costs?
