Can I have that as "4M guaranteed, burstable to 15M, 95th percentile billing"?
I'd rather have that than pay for 15M for the 1 hour a month I actually need it.

(And yes, I'm fully aware of what the margin is on the consumer-grade cable I
have, and why cookie-cutter installs are required to make even that margin, and
why it won't happen unless I jump to the business-class side.  Doesn't mean I
can't dream... :)
