What about the cases where the customer has more than 1 port on your
switch, you must then aggregate the traffic from N ports, discount the
data between the local hosts and only bill for the actual up/down from the
switch to the core, no?

That seems complex, of course perhaps only 1 port per customer makes some
sense in these cases too, eh?
