I ask because, after having had the service for two months, I was recently perusing their website and read through the Power Link TOS. And I came across something that made my jaw drop:
I say again, :eek:
My jaw dropped because in the time I have had this service I have exceeded this limit by several orders of magnitude, easily. And I haven’t heard a peep out of them about it.
My best theory here is that because I was an early adopter of this service in my area, there aren’t yet enough nearby subscribers such that my activities are “improperly interfering” with them. Does anyone else have any ideas about this?
The same TOS also forbids downloading usenet newsgroups “in bulk”. I’m not sure how they define that, but I have gotten an awful lot from newsgroups. It also forbids running a server, something I’ve been wanting to try. I wonder if I could get away with that too?
I should also mention that I consider myself off the hook here ethically, as I very specifically asked the nice Adelphia saleslady, when I was calling to inquire about the service, if there were any kinds of throughput limitations, and she said no.
