Chuck, maybe that's ...sort of...well, the American spirit.  I'd rather
anything than a rope around me.  I pay $6/mo., or more, to my VoIP provider
so that I have no limit on calls (to Europe or Asia!) rather than have to
pay a couple cents a minute over 500 minutes a month.  OK, so $22 vs. $16
isn't a big deal, but it demonstrates my point.

I know I'm losing.  But, I can't stand thinking about it.  So, I pay for
unlimited time. 

Perhaps that's why the unlimited Internet byte access is more interesting
here to subscribers than in Europe or Latin America.

Who knows?  I get mad just thinking about it and feel better knowing that
it's not a problem for me...I pay and feel unconstrained.  A simple $6 is
certainly cheaper than a psychiatrist for five minutes.  Come to think of
it, that won't even buy 5 minutes from one of them.  Such a deal!

Anyway, it's an interesting difference between the cultures as to what is a
comfortable subscription plan.

John, will this code say any thing I want it to, like "pay up or else"  If
you sell it, any deals for members?

Wow, Matt, you're well equipped with the good ideas.
In fact, we make a targeted messaging product that inserts a toolbar-like,
unobtrusive message into subscriber browsers display.  TVCABO bought it to
deploy all over Portugal...primarily to upsell their subscribers nearing
their byte cap limit.

I've seen several comments on the WISPA list that generally are very hostel
to byte cap subscriptions but that is more the rule than the exception in
Europe and Latin America we've found and, when a subscriber's near cut-off,
the up-sell is easier before than after.
