Median T-1 VPN port prices in major US cities ranged from $234 per month in Los Angeles to $251 per month in Atlanta in Q1 2013. While median monthly E-1 VPN port prices in most major western European cities fall within the narrow range of $313 in London to $340 in Amsterdam, prices can be as much as 6 times higher in cities in eastern Europe and the Balkans. TeleGeography analyst Brianna Boudreau, however, predicted “lower, more consistent regional pricing in the coming years” as transport costs to emerging markets such as the Middle East and Africa fall.
