One of the U.S.'s largest ISPs has started metering some of its customers and will start charging them if they go over certain usage limits. Time Warner's punters in Beaumont, Texas, will have monthly allowances for the amount of data they upload and download. Those who go over will be charged $1 per gigabyte.
