hahaha. Or a family that consists of many, many "cousins" all hoping to watch streaming US television that they can't get in their home country. It's not just birthday party videos, for sure.
more like storing and serving ripped copies of bluray discs to remote users you can find plenty of "rogue" live US tv stream feeds on the internet if you know where to look. -- Suffolk County NY Police Feed - »www.scpdny.com PS3 Gaming Feed - »www.livestream.com/elitedata
I would agree. Him claiming he uses it for streaming video to his family is simply BS.
Regardless of a limit and how much he used. His justification is what stinks here.
That is just one of the many things I use it for. I also do happen to seed a bunch of linux stuff as well. And before you call the BS flag let it be known I do happen to work for a company that is an open-source project for a file-system that is included in the linux kernel. -- 300/150 mbit Bonded Verizon FiOS connection FTW!
Right.... and regardless of how you spin it you are running some major uploading services that clearly are not acceptable to them and if you "work for a company" then let that company provide their own bandwidth to do their seeding per their own agreements with their own ISP. FYI, that excuse causes me to call bullshit even more.
Nutshell: Do as they ask or find another provider for yourself, your family, the company you work for and all those other thousands of people you are feeding with your line.
