Who said anything about fault? This is merely a
recognition on the part of Government that consumers
might make a costly mistake. The Government decided
to tell ISPs to give the consumers an extra notice to
try to prevent that.
Not unreasonable at all (although personally, I like
the TX-style "all your long distance are 11D, else
10D" approach). Simple consumer protection, similar
to the <offtopic warning!>
requirement to publish both per item and per measured
unit pricing on foodstuffs...< /offtopic>
