BT Wholesale's pricing on ISP's

I am just curious as to whether BT Wholesale charges a flat fee of £14.75 to ALL speeds of service?
What I mean is as regards AOL's 3 broadband offerings there is the Silver (256 kb) service at £19.99, the Gold (512 kb) service at £24.99 and the Platinum (1 mb) service at £29.99.

There doesn't seem to be much difference in price between the Silver service and the Platinum service so is it true then that ISP's make more money from people subscribing to faster services?

For example on Platinum £29.99 - £14.75 = £15.24 profit for the ISP where as with Silver £19.99 - £14.75 = just £5.24 profit for the ISP!
Is this right or does BT Wholesale charge more in rental for the faster services?
Just curious!

p.s. I read somewhere that BT Wholesale used to charge ISP's £25 line rental but has since dropped this down to £14.75 meaning cheaper broadband for all.
I am not sure if this true though.
