Is that meant to be a problem?

When people buy more, the unit price they are paying falls, but the total 
price they pay generally goes up. E.g. we've recently upgraded our 
business link from AUD$150 per month for 60GB to $190 for 100GB. The per 
GB price is less, but the total we pay is more -- and the ISP doesn't 
have to do much extra work for that extra money.
