No idea what you're talking about here. That's not part of the equation.

Here's a question: do you think it's fair to have to pay more if you
use more of a service? Should nice Mrs. Figg down the road from you be
forced to subsidize your
pirated-over-produced-South-Korean-action-flick torrenting addiction?
Should you be allowed to essentially flood the neighborhood's
aggregate connection in order to watch live semi-clothed Slovakian
underwater tennis matches on ESPN360? Or can ISPs reasonably do some
amount of traffic shaping/QoS in order to try to make sure Mrs. Figg's
cross-stitch sampler patterns can arrive in a reasonable timeframe
