Re: Wasted bandwidth

Metered billing will lead to a new arms race between the ad vendors and the people making things like adblock. more and more websites will try and hide things behind paywalls because people will block ads to save money.

Though to be honest, Multimedia ads are such a horrible idea to start with.

Putting a list of ad servers in a hosts file or in a local/private DNS server and having the sites go to some local address is going to be awfully hard to counter.
