If they're going to charge you by the byte, then
it's possible their own ads and whatever else they
"inject", can put you over the cap.

What a deal! They put you over, then charge you for it!

Can you say Hosts file?
Exactly...extra consumption to put capped users over the top.
These days, its all screwed.
a) Throttled/filtered (Bell / Comcast)
b) Capped (Rogers / Time Warner)
Now add injected ads to consume MORE bandwidth... oh wait, they're making profits on both ends.
