Residential BW Planning

I had a very educational experience with an ISP that provides two
choices to their customers: a) pay as you go (per GB charge with a
token monthly fee for keeping the port active) and b) 150GB per month
"unlimited" package

Both packages were priced with the intent to have the same cost for
customers with similar usage.

After 1 year and about 2000 customers in each package, we found that
the average consumption was 0.2 Mbps per customer in a) and 0.35 Mbps
per customer in b)

Hope that helps.
