The market has become very competitive, bandwidth prices are 
dropping (this is only quite recently also happening in the UK),
plus there are a mix of providers selling low budget services in
bulk (with small margins) and inexperienced people selling things
at pricing which isn't sustainable.

Not quite at those levels (and you would probably not want to use
one), but pricing is becoming better.
