I agree with you that more than likely, we'll eventually end up with a use-based billing scheme. The issue I see is that it seems the ISPs want to keep the "normal" users at the current pricing, and simply charge more for the "heavy" users. If it's usage based, some people will use less, which ought to mean they get charged less since they no longer pay part of the bill for the heavy users, which would mean less money in the pockets of your ISP.
