Verizon Bans P2P, Streaming Services, and Online Gaming

Via TorrentFreak.

Verizon customers on the EVDO Wireless Data Service are in for a surprise if they read the Terms of Service (TOS)

The Unlimited Data Plan is - yes, thats right limited to 5gigs of transfers each month but don’t worry, you won’t need anywhere near that amount because your internet multimedia experience is about to be ruined by the banning of your favourite activities;

There is to be no continuous uploading nor downloading, no streaming (that means no YouTube for you to enjoy and no internet radio) and no playing games either, they’re banned too. No P2P is allowed whatsoever.

If you get caught going over your ‘Unlimited’ service’s cap of 5gig in one month, Verizon say that you will be “presumed to be using the service in a manner prohibited above, and we reserve the right to immediately terminate the service of any such person without notice”

So what is allowed then? Well Verizon says that you may still check your email and browse the Internet.
