In other words, you're doing exactly as Comcast is, who says only 0.01% of their base "abuses" the network (which they also define as causing problems for others). They have no download limit either. Supposedly anyway ;-).

Unless they are causing a problem with other customers, we just let them go. 99% of the time the issue is an upload running (p2p, virus, etc.) but if they are just downloading, it's fine with me.

Can you elaborate Travis.
What do you mean by unlimited?
If a sub downloads say 50 gigs in a month, do you not bother them unless they are impacting an ap, or do you let them keep on going?

The unlimited model seems to be working for us for almost 10 years now (with high-speed wireless service). We have some customers that we have to call and explain how it works to them, but for the most part it runs great. They get what they pay for, 24x7. :)

HAAA!!!!  I was right again!

The all you can eat idea is gonna HAVE to go out the window. If Comcast can't support the model neither can any of the rest of us.

We now give people 6 gigs per month. No cut offs for going over, but there is additional billing...

Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
Life is but an empty dream!
For the soul is dead that slumbers,
And things are not what they seem.
