Atleast one of you customers would have to be a lawyer or know a lawyer who wouldn't mind putting some time into a fairly simple case of purposeful misrepresentation of pricing structures.
Didn't someone try this against Sympatico when they implimented bandwidth usage caps on their "unlimited" broadband internet?
