Telstra charges by byte sent over the link, regardless of protocol.  
What I had never been able to get out of them was whether they were  
only counting traffic inside the PPPoE/PPPoA session.

At least you can halve the traffic charges incurred (by Telstra's own  
network probing) by dropping the pings at your end. Yes they do  
charge, no they won't turn it off.

Mind you, last time I had a Telstra service was getting close to  
three years ago now.
