Metered billing per byte instead of per minute.
DS0 (uncompressed digital telephone line) are spec'd at 64Kb/s ... let's give them the benefit of the doubt and assume a full duplex connection requires 64Kb/s in each direction ... further let's assume they begin spinning the byte meter forward for both upload and download transfers...
128Kb/s = 960KB/min ...
5GB = 5,242,880KB
So my 5GB cap nets me over 5400 minutes per month of full-rate, uncompressed, full-duplex talk time.
