Assuming a month is 30 days (nice round number), 50GB/month is about 161kbps, all the time. That's the equivalent of, say, leaving a high-quality streaming radio station running, or a low-quality video feed like gbs.tv. I'm staying out of the rest of the discussion, because I'm violently allergic to pay-by-the-bit pricing. It may make good sense to the bookkeeper, but with streaming media (YouTube, Google Video), big downloadable media (iTunes movies, Amazon Unbox), and giant software downloads (World of Warcraft and just about every other MMORPG) becoming more prevalent, I think it's just gonna seriously annoy your users in the long term.
