I don't see a problem with a customer using what they've paid for.  If
the ISP advertised something, and accepted the client, the customer
ought to be able to do what they want with it.

Here, ISP accounts are generally limited in some way.  Whether that be
bytes per second, or bytes per month.  I'd have no qualms about using up
every last iota of my quota.  I have little sympathy for ISPs
overselling themselves, that's their fault.  I do have sympathy for the
rest of their users being overcharged to subsidise the other users (ISPs
spreading the costs around, unfairly).  It should be user pays, and user
pays fairly.
