    Have any other of you hosts thought of this?

    1 megabyte actually equals 1024 kilobytes. Altho that may not seem like that much of a different it will give your clients extra space and trasnfer. If your offer 2 gigs of transfer they mess out on 48 megs(maybe just enough to get by for that month).

    THe bandwidth monitors take that into account. So the customer is not missing out on anything.

    I have yet to cut a customer off or charge for less than a gig of overage.
    Most host are pretty easy going it is the guys that use way over we worry about.

    That's exactly right. We're very lax on our charging policy for excess bandwidth and generally either don't charge or offer a client the ability to upgrade packages instead of extra billing.

    Charging for 48 megs of extra traffic would either be from an automated source or the president of a really-tight ship

    We charge for overage of 1+ MB, simply because it's completely automated. Our customers can log into our control panel and view graphs of their http, ftp, shell, and listserv traffic, and so there's no surprises.
