I don't think this will last.  Flat-rate Internet billing is pretty  
ingrained in the U.S.  They'll give up when people start flocking to  
competing ISPs.

It reminds me of how from time to time phone companies would float  
trial balloons about charging by the minute for local calls, because  
of all those BBS and Internet users who were tying up their switches  
for long periods of time with their new-fangled "modems."
