How can they tell?

How can they tell an HTTP file transfer from a web page view, which is just a series of HTTP file transfers?

I think a "pokey", rate limiting server could make you seem to be repeatedly refreshing a large page.
I understand their goal, and think it will block/ discourge the really large Satellite hog downloaders.
but the description/definition leaves a lot to the imagination as to limits and that often leads to lawsuits.

Seems to me what will happen is you are at full speed until 5GB but then you are throttled to 1-2X dial up speed, effectively eliminating your ability to do anything other than surfing and email by virtue of throughput simply being so slow.
