Re: Monopoly style greed
This to me is more similar to having a regulated utility (AT&T and others would really hate being regulated!).
If you're being charged per unit, then that unit must have an 'approved' meter to validate it (similar to water, gas, electricity).
Imagine if my house bill hit $750 for one month while my disconnect was off... I'm not saying that it couldn't happen with an unregulated device, but having a meter on my house that isn't regulated could allow something like that to happen - no checks and balances.
