I think you're definately on the right track here.

I am all for high access-speeds but volume based billing, preferrably with
different classes there as well, with free local, cheap national and
high-priced international bw, preferrably in steps.

Either that or just do it the simple way, total measuing of the traffic on
the port. Either you transfer less than 5 gigs per month and you're
considered a low usage user, transfer less than 50 gigs per month and
you're considered a normal customer, transfer more than that and you're
considered a high-volume customer and you have to pay even more.

If possible, measure this at your global transit routers instead of at the
local port. Email customers once a week with their total usage or when
they pass a tariff limit.

Look at an ethernet based ISP with 10 megabit/s customers. Their local
loop with ethernet of different speeds is fairly cheap to produce.
National network capacity isn't that bad either. Global transit is
