Average is just a function of total and time, and time progresses linearly
with time, so average x some $ figure is just the same as saying total x
some other $ figure.
So most people would just look at that as being billing based upon total
traffic volume, which yes, there are folks who do. I don't know of any in
the U.S., but it's very common overseas, particularly places which have
satellite links in their upstream path.
