HTTP traffic might be a low percentage of overall bandwidth, but it is a
very high percentage of what most (non-technical) users care about.

surely there are better ways of achieving this in your routers,
simply differentiating the route based on TCP port 80 would get 85% of
sure people could bypass it, but it wouldn't be in their interest to do
so in the case your proposing.
It would also have the upside of people being able to do host overrides,
and not breaking some sites.
the whole proxy thing is kinda odd actually, being that ive seen figures
around that HTTP traffic is now such a low percentage of bandwidth...
why bother. I guess they still figure its 'enough'

From what I understand TPG use their proxy more for segregating

As I understand the proxies are on ranges that are advertised to
"good" bandwidth supply so that customers browsing remains
unaffected regardless of how hard they run the "bad" bandwidth
