Re: WOW has no cap (at least for now)

I do stand corrected.. I'm positive I'd seen it in writing but their Internet Terms of Service (»www.wowway.com/internet-cable-ph···service/) makes no mention of it. I even called to verify and the three reps I'd spoken to all assured me that there was no cap.

In a slightly related area:
Their Privacy Policy (»www.wowway.com/internet-cable-ph···service/) states:
"We may use or partner with a third party advertising company (or companies) who may use cookies, web beacons, or other technologies to deliver or facilitate delivery of advertisements about goods and services tailored to interests you have shown by browsing on the WOW! and other websites you have visited."

They do have filters on their network that snipe your searches and redirect you to a WoW branded search page which I think is deplorable. It only works on basic searches (»www.google.com/search?q="blah") but I still loathe the practice.

You can easily opt out of that service.

USE THE BING SEARCH ENGINE, NOT THE ONE ON THE PAGE. NO SNIPES.
