i didn't say the volume based billing schemes were a good idea. the fact is, i don't know wheter it is bad or good.

what i tried to say was that with volume based billing you would get rid of (or get them to pay more) of the 10% customers that stand for 90% of the traffic volume. but what you would also do is probably kill all the bandwidth demanding applications (as streaming services) and further development/improvement of such.
