They could put in place their traffic shaping policies from clearwire..
Well clearwire tend to "Throttle" most p2p type applications and occasionally voip.
How can Clearwire afford to do this? Aren't the haemorrhaging customers (good enough for them, with their piece of sh*t service!)?
Maybe they are already as im still getting low speeds with torrents!
HAHA - Now im glad they disconnected me
hmmm, well if the deal hasnt gone through yet, they legally cant start messing around with the network.
Why did they disconnect you?
Well after 18months and 2Tb later my connection misteriously vanished and they promptly (next day) came out to "fix it" but no joy so took it away. Installer said it was strange but did hear they were disconnecting the heavy downloaders but he wouldnt know who they were. Ah well - Lets see what UTV do
IBB can mess around with the network all they like.
I'd be real interested in what Clearwire will do after they aquire IBB (assuming the deal goes through). I don't think they'd get away with changing terms & conditions (i.e., introduce caps, block ports, etc) yet still charge the same for the service.
IBB's service works OK (mostly), so Clearwire saying service degredation is due problems associated with the merger just won't cut it. You can't expect customers who signed up for 12 month contracts to stick around if the goalposts have been moved.
Same goes for early exit penalties, can these be enforced if the T's & C's have been radically altered?
You guys really need to stop saying stuff is "illegal" left, right and center.
Is there a clause in the contract saying that no traffic shaping will occur? The last time I checked, no such clause existed. Same goes for the cap, I don't recall "unlimited trafficking" being part of the actual contract.
I didn't even know IBB customers were tied into any sort of contract at all?
I know I signed one when I had IBB.
