Hey Carlos, don't get me to try to defend those rip off artists. ;-)

From a purely business case, I presume they price the service based on the
fact that
they know nobody uses one meg all the time. They run the numbers and learn
that people
use less, and price it accordingly.

They know (on average) you won't use the full meg, so they charge you less than
it would actually cost (allegedly) to provide you with a full meg 24/7.

Nobody wants caps. That's why they do it that way. If they just put in
the bandwidth caps and byte caps they would never be in this situation.
But people bitch, and equipment to do so is more expensive.

At one time I had a Real Sig. Its been downsized.
