Not meaning to be rude, but are you sure its the timing belt, which is encapsulated / under the black plastic cover on the front of the motor & not just a alternator / power steering belt which you can see when looking under the bonnet?

I know that not just with WRX's but with any cars, a snapped timing belt is always not good news as when it snaps, AFAIK it might take a couple of things with it as well. I hope what broke in your car really isn't the timing belt.

2.2 and 1.8 are non interference, so its not an issue... everything else, its an issue.

On the question of belt longevity, I did 313xxx Km on the old L series, original twin timing belts from factory, before it got pensioned off on a trade-in.
