> $1 per gigabyte is equivalent to $316/Mbit fairly averaged.
Let's assume that someone sells at $1/gig, then is billed $316/mb/s/mon by
thier provider. Let's further assume that the customer who is buying at
$1/gig is averaging 1 mb/s, but has perfect sine-wave bandwidth usage, ie,
0 kb/s at midnight, 1 mb/s at 6a, 2 mb/s and noon, 1 mb/s at 6p, and 0
mb/s again at midnight. (Agreeing that a perfect sine wave of usage is
mostly unlikely, but it's a reasonable assumption that said customer won't
be at the average all month). Problem: Provider is billed for 2 mb/s.
