i knew this also

thats exactly what i want to do... but thousands a month
for bandwidth is kind of insane for someone without a
$100,000 yearly income. Is it possible to buy, lets say,
1MB per second bandwidth and end up paying less than
going through a normal ISP that would charge you $75(???)?

There's a saying that applies here:

"You get what you pay for."

If you want high-bandwidth then you have to pay someone what they want to
provide it to you. If you want a low bill then you have to accept the
bandwidth that you're willing to pay for. There ain't no free lunch.
