Sounds like manager material to me.
And this is why in australia all of our ADSL/Cable plans have "shaping" you get your allotment (usually in peak/offpeak GB per month) and once you go over it they "shape" your previously 24mbit** connection to 64 or 128kbit/s.
This means your monthly bill is a flat cost but if you accidentally stream too many movies off xbox live or something you will be back in dialup land till the end of your billing cycle or decide to upgrade to a more generous plan.
Our ISPs got slapped about 7 years ago for selling "unlimited" plans that had hidden smallprint limits in the acceptable useage policy (some of them defining abuse by being in the 98th percentile) as it was found to be illegal by the consumer watchdog.
** 24mbit is actually an average of 15mbit due to the nature of ADSL2+
Just "leak" Windows XP into space and hopefully they'll have a malware-compatible infrastructure in no time!
