Anyone got links?
Can someone find the links to further discussions about the Qwest EUP policies since that original or just read the full original thread? I know it was disclosed eventually that you actually have to seriously abuse - we're talking in the 500 gig range - to draw their ire. Unless, perhaps, you live in areas with major congestion. It's possible I suppose that they've ramped those invisible caps down in the wake of Comcast and Time Warner's plans. Still, the 1-3 GB was never a hard cap and merely an estimate of what "average" users do in a month. I don't know who these people are, but I'd like to meet them. Given the highly-visual and ad-laden webpages of today, there's no way even casual users ultimately fall into this. Even my aunt, who is 65 and doesn't know what illegal downloads are uses streaming videos and web radio.
Yes, the way they detail it in their EUP is ridiculous and outdated, and the amounts they specify are completely outdated. 1-3 gigs? Yeah, per DAY maybe. And that might just be coming from one computer in a house. Start adding in more computers and more users and those numbers look asinine.
I live in Qwest territory. I won't even consider going back til my neighborhood can get better than 1.5 (which can't even be had stable enough to train as better than 1/3 of that).
