Business Class - Are Usenet/Newsgroups a issue?

I'm considering getting Business Class service installed at home since my bandwidth from Sonic.net isn't that great (and recently got worse). Things on the Comcast end were almost looking great for me until I read some mentions about Usenet/Newsgroup from their Acceptable Use Policy.

My question to Business Class users, do they actually even care about Usenet traffic? A large majority of my monthly bandwidth is SSL Usenet and the last thing I want to do is sign up for new service only to run into issues down the line.

Thanks!

Traffic is traffic on business class - they don't care as long as you're not breaking the law.

How much usenet traffic are you expecting?

I use UseNet all the time on my Business Class line. Sometimes downloading 200-300 GB in a month and have had zero issues.

I'm on a residential account and they don't care about usenet traffic so I'm sure they won't care about it on business.

Right now on a 4/1 DSL line, I'm pulling in about 600GB a month. With a faster connection, I would imagine this will go up to 900GB or so a month. This is pretty much total traffic per month though, I don't have anything else that equates to any significant amount of traffic.
