Using Tomato is there anyway to block/close WAN once a DL bandwidth limit is reached?

    Not sure if this is new. With any ISPs that have fixed bandwidth DL/UP, once its reached, is there a way to cap the WAN (shut off) until new month starts again? It would be similar to a 3G data application that monitors your cellphone data usage and shuts off the data until new month starts.

    Since its tomato firmware, and we can already monitor and control individual users within our own LAN, I was wondering if there is someway to control the WAN side when the total download+upload exceeds a certain bandwidth/data amount.

    Would this be a good feature to have? It rarely happens, but sometimes, I've noticed a charge whenever I exceed the monthly limit. I have to remember to check if every few days/weeks to see what my data usage has been so that I can throttle my internet usage.

    If this feature was built-into Shibby Tomato, it would reduce the hassle. If its already there, can someone point this out to me?
