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.

    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"?
