On your core routers?  That'd seem like a bad idea...perhaps at the edge
(like your customer concentrators) but I digress..

From what you're asking for I'm not sure why you'd need to watch their
Web traffic.  Just watch their log-in, likely less hassle and requires no
funniness on backbone routers.

Try  Honestly, that list has a lot of access providers
and likely several are doing what you describe who can offer you some 
assistance.  I've seen it done and it's a fairly straightforward concept
(just requires a small client app on the end-user host) but I've never had
to do it myself.
