10,000 views * 100MB = 1,000,000MB
1,000,000MB / 1000 (instead of 1024, for simplicity's sake) = 1,000GB,
or about 1TB

you're off by a factor of 10

if this is a business, moving a terabyte of video a month, there ought
to be a way to justify $400/month for a dedicated server a 1TB of
bandwidth. That's four cents US per view, yes?

anyway, if you were sharing my server and moving a terabyte of video
every month, I'd fuss just a bit ;)
