As per our village lawyer and accountant ...
95th percentile billing, sampling every 5 minutes.
You'll need about 1.5days worth of 0 (~447 samples missing in a
row) to bork the curve... and it goes the bith ways.
If you're 5Gbps committed on a 10Gbps and you burst 10Gbs for 1.6
days, you pay for 10Gbps for that month.
And yes that include the best effort to manage DDoS from both
part. We're capitalist, but no one is from big pharma =D.
