These two are essentially the same. You do have three variations of
a) vth percentile: $x per y zzzbits/sec, with a t committment.
Occasionally, any usage over t has a different price.
b) 'Average usage', which is is the same as A, but using an averaging
measurement system, rather than a percentile system (50th percentile is
NOT the same as, or even relevant to, average).
c) counting bytes: $x per y bytes.
