I wouldn't say that's standard, 100Mbit is way at the top end of the range at $100/mo+, if it is available at all. 10/1 or 4/0.5 are much more common and only cost $30-$50. You must have some incredible infrastructure where you are at. Also my numbers match up with the poster, there is 10-20 ms of latency between my laptop and my first upstream hop. Maybe you are on fiber and don't know it?
