This is a VERY well written policy that works well. Since it is
automated it also P***ES off subscribers. My father-in-law uses Hughes.
He bought an electronic copy of Adobe Photoshop. The version he
purchased was a 3CD-ROM set. He got through 1 CD rom and POOF he was on
This was a completely legitimate download of completely legitimate
software and the Adobe download software was only doing something like
50KB/sec as it self throttles.
Man o Man, that was 2 years ago and he STILL P***ES and moans about it!
Due to this, I use a "play nice" policy. If I see some abnormal usage
(and I get paged by my MRTG system) I simply cut the user off for a bit
to break the bit-torrent session or I call the user. I tell them that
they are on a shared system and that if they don't play nice then they
can't play at all.
Now, I have little to no competent competition so if the end user really
wants to get mad then I let them out of their contract.
My $.00002(CAN) worth.
ps: if you ever venture over Stevens Pass. Email me, I'll buy you lunch
while I pick your brain. :)

This looks like it's well written and makes a ton of sense to me.
Anyone else implementing a program like this?
Any suggested specifics?
