Is bandwidth still too costly?

Image captured from Yahoo News ... (which might go away someday)

untitled This is the "big" image from a news article, and really does not do justice to the subject.

Now I can understand the need to keep image sizes down, in the days when bandwidth was expensive and most users were on dial-up modems. Is this still an appropriate tradeoff? Bandwidth is cheaper and dial-up is a much smaller portion of the user population. Isn't it time to upsize the images offered?
