Cost is a meaningless number when trying to gauge actual performance.  Many times a higher cost can out perform something with a lower cost.

Selecting ALL records from a table is guaranteed to be a full table scan (FTS)  unless it is index-organized.

The only way to speed up a FTS is faster disks, partitioning, add a where clause to allow index usage.

Depending on the app, maybe artificial paging.  In other words, the app only displays 20 rows at a time then only bring back 20 rows from the database.
