discourage the use of services like Netflix. If
you still wish to use it, and the bandwidth
usage is beyond what we deem to be within
acceptable levels, we may contact you and

sharing traffic. The manner in which bit torrent

other customers on the network due to high bandwidth

abuse features we offer our
customers, such as speed bursting to improve
everyone's overall online experience, is the reason
that we do not permit the use of
bit torrent file sharing on our service, and will act
accordingly to stop it when detected. If there are
multiple violations detected, you may risk having your
