Bandwidth is really cheap at the wholesale level. SFLan gets its bandwidth donated by the Internet Archive and a few other institutions and individuals. For large content providers, the asymmetrical usage patterns make it easy to donate bandwidth.

Other than the nodes, the capital cost is really low: a few servers, switches and routers. But you need volunteers to look after the network.

If you can connect to San Bruno, by all means do so and you don't have to worry about your initial source of bandwidth. (San Bruno has a problem right now, though.)

If you want to know more details feel free to e-mail me.
