I'm CTO for a new Techno/Trance Radio named Let's Go Zik
(http://www.letsgozik.com) and i'm looking for the cheapest solution to
broadcast. For the moment, we're using Live356 for relaying our stream.
It's quite good but a little bit too cheap and not handy (they do not
provide multiple bitrate relay, ...). This is why I'm starting a new
study. Everyone can help us by answer this questions:
Where can I find bandwidth for best prices ?
Where can I find bandwidth prices evolution ? 
Is it more interesting to pay for "speed" (10 Mbit/s for exemple) or
"quantity" (10 Go a month) ?
Why bandwidth is too expensive ? How does it works ? (prices between ISP
and so on)

Thanks a lot !
