It should work both ways, and is at best extortionist. The net work has a capacity limit which every paying user now experiences, in the new scheme this fixed limit is cut in two tiers, one subscribed to, the other for extra pay. In the end people pay more for the same service, and the service is made artificially scarce to the benefit of people that don't pay extra. There should be a law against this type of arrangement. You dont'go to a restaurant and get served to little for the menu price to then get offered the extra you want at double the price. Shit, you do in some cases..
