Essentially, this guy was told that he would be charged: ".002 cents per kilobyte."

But when he got the bill, it was $71 dollars. He was charged at the rate "$.002/KB". That is, .002 dollars per kilobyte.

I am astonished that all the people he was calling couldn't understand the difference. Kinda scary, actually.
