Wild Blue , good example. Wild Blue is a fringe broadband player.
Cable and DSL set the rules. They are the majority of the market.
The majority of the market does not charge by the bit, but the fringe does.
Guess thats proof enough.

I understand the reasoning behind "why" a lot of operators want to do

Unfortunately the market place has ruled out metered or measured
broadband. So we need to think about the future, and the future is a
busier network. Not sure I'd want to start charging by the bit at this
point along the way.
(just wondering) Do you have something to back up the statement that
"the market place has ruled out metered or measured broadband", or only
assume so because you do not see it being done? I know WildBlue, for
one, meters bandwidth usage and limits it aggresively when one oversteps
the allotted amount. And it sounds like Mac is doing pretty well with
bandwidth caps. So how again exactly is a usage limit "ruled out"?
