Re: Monopoly style greed

Gasoline at the pump isn't a utility either, and it has meters regulated by the State. What is the difference?

That gasoline sales ARE regulated, this is not.
The chief reason states ended up tightly regulating gas pumps is that's where TAX is calculated and everystate AND the federal gov't relies partially on gas tax for road building.
If you were willing to have even a minut tax per byte, you'd see 57+ bills in your state legislature calling for certified metering NOW.
As you pay tax(if any) based on a monthly charge metering is a non issue...UNLESS you can create a verifible legal case proving constant or deliberate inaccuracy.

I'm not sure exactly what you are saying,

But you would be charged tax on the overages.
