Usage based data plans

The mobile operators intend to introduce usage based charges for their data plans, instead of unlimited usage. Details are shown in this Business Times report:
StarHub, SingTel may revise charges to deter hefty usage
The telcos' crusade against virtually unlimited mobile data usage might soon be upon 3G shores.
StarHub and SingTel are taking a good look at revising their 3G price plans, the two telcos told BT yesterday.
StarHub said that it may 'review current (3G) pricing plansand consider introducing usage-based data pricing', in response to BT's queries.
I do not mind paying usage based charges. I have a plan that limits my data usage to 1G, but the actual usage is only 500 M a month. I have now upgraded to a cheaper plan that provides 16G, but I don't think that it is necessary.
