Re: CL to start capping CenturyLink High-Speed Internet connects customers to the people, things and information important to them. Whether downloading music or photos, watching videos or TV shows online, e-mailing or any number of other activities, CenturyLink High-Speed Internet, is fast, reliable, and full of features to help customers navigate the Internet.
The majority of CenturyLink High-Speed Internet customers make great use of their high-speed service and comply with the CenturyLink High-Speed Internet Service Agreement. An extremely small percentage use CenturyLink High-Speed Internet excessively, or at such extreme high volumes, that they violate the terms of their CenturyLink High-Speed Internet Subscriber Agreement. While this high volume use is very rare, CenturyLink makes it a point to talk to these customers and help them find a high-speed Internet solution to better meet their needs.
Beginning November 21, 2011, the CenturyLink EUP policy will be updated to include the following "bulleted" changes:
Policy will now provide download usage "Limits" based on customer purchased HSI speed.
Customers purchasing service at speeds of 1.5Mbps and below, have a usage limit of 150 Gigabytes (GB) of download volume per month.
Customers purchasing service at speeds greater than 1.5Mbps, have a limit of250GB in download volume per month.
Policy applies to Residential HSI customers and is only enforced in the "downstream" (from internet to customer) direction.
Business Class lines are exempt from the download "limits" but will still be subject to EUP policy compliance and future updates.
Not all CenturyLink regions have metering capabilities but the EUP policy will be enforced as required manually for all CenturyLink regions.
All customers should have 30 calendar days between their notifications. The enforcement will be applied via a 3 stage process for compliance notifications/walled garden message to disconnection notice within 12 month period.
CenturyLink PRISM video traffic is not included in the limit
There are no overage charges or metering fees for usage as part of the Policy
Additional information will be posted on Centurylink.com this Monday.
This is what was sent to me.
there's way too many open questions with this. but will have to wait and see if this is true. I checked the link, it reads under construction.
if this is true, they want to cap users. most rural area's can't get over 1.5 to start with from a lot of stuff i've read. what about all of the bandwidth exhausts? some area's seem to be in these since the start of the year. tsk tsk tsk
