That is a very apt description of the impact of speed tiers.

Sounds reasonable if the connection fee is low as a percentage of the bill.

If a person chooses to stream multiple video streams 24/7 or use P2P shouldn't they pay significantly more than Grandma who wants to video conference with the grandkids a couple of times each month?
Usage based charging encourages NBNCo to keep their network uncongested and in good working order because that maximises the potentital revenue. Cheap connection (access) fees encourage more people to sign-up. Win-win.
