Re: Usage cap

Why not just limit the bandwidth when the cap is reached? This is how it is done in Australia and it keeps almost everyone happy. The Badnwidth limits were originally 64Kb/s until the next billing cycle. They are now better at 128Kb/s or 256Kb/s depending on the plan. The GB/month plans are reasonable(in my opinion) and they do have unmetered sites for VOD and other content.

Also, for this story, in Australia it is also illegal for a Company to profit from a crime. If the Router was hacked(and it had reasonable security) then the ISP can only charge their actual costs(at most) they cannot charge Retail rates(Profit from a crime).
