i work from home at night at times and i am a host of a conference bridge when i do work from him.(sic)
I too work from home at times
when I have a need outside of normal business hours and need to get a little extra done, need to work with people in other time zones, when I have an appointment at the house or a sick kid. I guess the question would be if at times
is on a consistent basis? Are these daily, weekly or monthly events?
None of the activities from home I do should require me to have business class phone or internet, but if I had the need to host very long phone conferences with regularity and doing so was important to my livelihood, I probably wouldn't do so on a budget phone service, which many residential VoIP providers are. That doesn't mean they don't provide good service for most people most of the time, but 3 hour calls is extreme.
I hadn't scanned the VT TOS for a while, but I do agree if there is a limit imposed, it should be listed. They do say residential service should not be used for "consistent" activity that could be considered "commercial". That is the closest thing I see that could apply.
My suggestion would be to call and try to engage them in a conversation and see if you can have the limit extended for you line. I have no idea if they would, but if these calls are not too regular, perhaps something could be worked out.
