Are they charging per /24 (assuming IPv4 here...), or per prefix?
If they are charging per /24, that seems like a great way to encourage

If they are charging per prefix, that seems like an interesting way to
encourage customers to make sure they aggregate their BGP advertisements
as much as possible.
