Internet bandwidth (properly measured) is not sold at a loss to home users. A typical home user with a 1 Mbit/sec connection consumes only a small fraction of that on average, even during peak hours. A typical ISP makes a pretty healthy margin on bandwidth when measured in terms of net cost per GB transferred, a margin that increases with economies of scale.
