They definitely were.  At my first ISP job, we had a usage based UUNet T1
that was billed according to 95th percentile traffic...but once you
started using much of a T1, it was cheaper to just switch over to their
flate rate "full T1" pricing.  This was back when you could run a small
ISP and take a full news feed on a single T1 and not fill it.
