There is no direct correlation between 95th percentile metering and actual GB utilization. It is more than possible that you were using 10+ megabit for a 20 minute period (which I think is the rule they have in place).
Managed.com has alot of people that buy their servers and hog the whole 100MBPS port until they run out of bandwidth, so they created this rule (most likely) to keep this from happening. I don't really see any problem with it, don't use bandwidth over 10MBPS for longer then 20 minutes or they disconnect your server. Also, at 50GB a day, you're pushing ~1500GB a month. At the end of the month, you'll be praising Managed for not making you pay $250.00 for that extra 500GB.
