yeah, but at least educom have an excuse - increasing bandwidth involves
a rocket launch. eircom at worst needs to order an additional line or
get more building space.
one problem i have is that isp's should differentiate between external
traffic, and traffic inside the isp. people snarfing oodles of data
from a server inside an isp (squid, ftp server, etc) should get charged
less then people snarfing oodles of pr0n from outside the isp.
obviously this doesn't matter for educom.
