Re: Give them an inch, they take a mile.
They should probably just use a DNS redirect or a temporary port 80 filter to do this sort of thing (much like a Wifi hotspot provider intercepts traffic until authentication or payment is made). That method seeems to be just about as effective, and far less panic-inducing to neutrality purists. Alerting users to their bandwidth use is a good thing for sure, but they should make it disableable and also offer email alerts and an online status page.
