I think the real issue is that ISPs advertise that you can download as much
as you want (without explicitly stating it, but trying to give that impression)
and then get in a hissy fit when someone actually tries to do this. And the
worst ones won't even tell you what the limits are.

If ISPs were upfront on what their usage policy was and either enforced it
themselves or explained users they would need to make sure they didn't
stray outside of the usage policy (because implementing some network policies
on the ISP side might be too costly) then people could make better decisions
on which ISPs they wanted to do business with and which plans they wanted
to purchase.

There is also an issue with bumping people over to business lines when they
want to use saturate their usage and that is they usually get stuck paying
for an SLA that they don't really need.
