Should I be billing based on the 95%tile of routes seen from the session, or the peak/min/max ?  I would say the max, since that's the highest cost.

As a buyer of internet services, you want a predictable cost (to some extent) so you can budget and manage it appropriately.

Adding another variable feels like "evil telco" charge you for whatever I can get away with mode.  It also would take some time to have customers sign new contracts with such terms...
