I would suspect that the customer (as is the case in much of the world, not necessarily in the limited world you may operate in) does not want to, or in many case could not pay for such a pipe. In many areas of the US, especially rural, bandwidth is extremely expensive. Customers do not want to pay close to $1k / month for their residential connection to the internet, yet the customer would like to access the internet at speed approaching 1.5 mbps (or even faster) whenever they can. In such a case it makes sense, is good business practice, and not at all unethical to sell customers shared bandwidth.
In cases such as these, the question posed by the OP is a valid question, and deserves an answer other than one which implies that they may be doing something they should not be. The world is a big place. It is good to get out and see parts of it you may not have seen lately.
