This doesn't sound very scalable.  You're almost certainly overcommitted on
the upstream side and likely looking at congestion if many customers are

What do you tell the customer who calls and complains that *he* isn't a major
traffic source, but he's seeing dropped packets and delays on your upstream
link?  Do you tell him its full and they can track down which other customer
is the offender?
