It just places another hurdle in the way of anyone who tries to set up an alternative to the favoured services.

You're also likely to find that the ISP will be more willing to cap the rest of the traffic because the sites the user uses the most are 'free'. This will then add another hurdle for 'alternative' sites when they soak up a users precious cap, and the users only option being to go back to the 'free' service.
