Re: 100GB Down To 20GB

I think this is the most sensible comment so far.

Clearly it is transmitting data that is causing the load on the system, so on a user-pays basis cutting the access fees (AVC) and increasing the data charges (CVC) would encourage people to modify their behaviour. RSPs could moderate this by:

1. peak / off-peak quotas

2. prioritisation based on volume of data transferred in the last 30-90 days

The government could see this delivered as essential service by providing quota free or rebates for traffic to certain government services (e.g. school of the air, medical services, etc.).
