Had a look at this site - not so easy to work out exactly what they
are selling!

Anyway, they will probably make a lot of money - on their "Sign-up Now"
page they define:

         'MB' means Megabyte equalling 1000 bytes and represents
         traffic usage on the Internet

so, if they can sell someone 20 MB of data and only have to pay for
20k, they are going to be WAY out in front.
