Google "In the net neutrality vision of the world, broadband providers simply deliver packets as they are paid to do. When it was just a set of online services, Google happened to fall on the side of citizens and used to advocate against broadband companies controlling the pipes. Now that it’s an ISP itself, Google is becoming a net neutrality hypocrite." This is why trusting companies - any company - is simply a bad idea. Companies don't care about you, and those that say they do are liars.

Please tell me how the following is to be considered reasonable use:


Using the bandwidth you're paying for is not reasonable use? If you don't want people to use a lot of bandwidth then don't sell them a lot of bandwidth. It's as simple as that.
Really, it's none of the ISPs goddamn business WHAT it is used for. You've paid for a certain amount of bandwidth and that's it. Running a game server, email server, web server, a slingbox or whatever: NONE of their business.
When you buy a mobile phone there's no restrictions what you can use it for and there's no rational reason why there should be this kind of restrictions on bandwidth (no, greed is not a rational reason).
