Wrong.  ISP's make money from subscriptions.  The ideal subscriber would
be someone who pays the $21.95/month (or whatever it is these days) and
*never* uses the Internet.  If you have 1000's of those, you could make
a tidy profit on a T1.  The more bandwidth a subscriber uses, the less
profitable their subscription is to the ISP.
