Obviously, a dialup user running services pulling max bandwidth 24/7 on an entry-level account is a problem. However, to play devil's (customer's?) advocate, it _is_ advertised as 'umlimited access' ... It seems kind of, well, silly to advertise a service in certain language, and then to complain when somebody takes you literally. Perhaps I'm just not seeing this from the business perspective. :) -- Scott Francis [email protected] [home:] d a r k u n c l e . n e t Systems/Network Manager [email protected] [work:] t o n o s . c o m GPG public key 0xCB33CCA7 illum oportet crescere me autem minui
