We focus on customer education and tools. A bandwidth calculator on your
website is recommended, both for your customers, and your sales department
(mycricket.com has a great example).

We also provide a way for customers to view their current usage for the
month, in near real-time. We've implemented a monthly bandwidth quota, and
have that discussion up front with new customers (and sent letters to
existing customers) so that they can choose the appropriate tiered service,
based on their expected usage patterns.
