If no one can regulate how Internet Service Providers charge for access to the Internet then what is stopping them from charging you $0.05 a MB when going to a site you've never heard of and $0.10 a MB when going to a popular website when it makes no difference to them what sites you use your MBs on.
Kinda like AT&T charging 20 bucks/month for tethering, why should it matter how you use your data? Because even though the plan gives you X data, they don't want you to reach the limits of it. They know that tethering will have users using a lot of data so they charge more for it. They're taking this idea to the web knowing that few sites push as much data as YouTube on a mobile device. It's still insane though.
