How Much Broadband Usage is Too Much?

levendis Question (1143 comments)

Why don't cable companies just meter bandwith, like any other vital utility (gas, electric, water, etc)? I'd happily $.05/GB or whatever it costs them, as long as I didn't have to worry about violating their rules.

Does any company do this yet? It seems technically feasible, considering how much smarts are in cable modems these days...
