I am not necessarily against metered billing. HOWEVER, it has to be reasonable. Second, there has to be an accurate way to measure usage at my router. One PC doesn't matter when you have VoIP, 3 computers and a DirecTV receiver all on the internet.
So how about a base price plus usage? Maybe $10 for the line and $0.25 per gb from there. I don't have any clue how much that would be for me, but I can almost bet it would be less than the $60 I pay now.
The problem I have with metering talk is the $1 per gb. There is no way that is an accurate measure of bandwidth cost.
Even $.10 per gigabyte is pushing it but closer. .25 = $1 per 4 gigs $10 per 40 gigs, $50 per 200 gigs, so a $60 bill for 200 gigs usage, and that includes both up and downstream.
