Exepnsive comoared to what? other countries? other lesiure acitvities?
compared to other countries yes we are more expensive (mostly) for the reasons already given.
compared to other lesiure acitvities I would say that given how much use I get out of the internet for each dollar I spend on it, compared to my other lesiure activities, I would say it is quite cheap.
I get a lot more 'value' out of each dollar I spend on the internet compared to, say, each dollar I spend on going to the cinema, going skiing, buying video games, etc etc.
