Are these broadband customer using PPPoE or L2TP?   If so, I suggest  
looking at the capabilities of your BRAS to do the work.

Per user bandwidth quotas are the nature of the game here in Australia  
and doing it at the BRAS is the way we do it.   RADIUS gives you byte  
counts and gives you the ability to pass back rate limits etc.
