Note about Verizon Wireless’ Broadband Access

Just an FYI for anyone considering using Verizon's Broadband Access.

I just received a termination notice from Verizon for using too much bandwidth. The letter states that I used more than 10GB in a 30 day period. I called to protest and the representative that answered the phone told me that such high usage was proof that I was violating their terms of service by watching streaming video and music. I checked my past bills and I've used 6.3GB per month for the last 3 bills. They count both incoming and outgoing bandwidth.

I've read up on and it appears that 10GB in 30 days or 5GB per month for 3 months is the trigger.

Verizon has no dispute process, once you get the letter they will cut you off and there is nothing they will do about it. No warnings, one strike and you're out.

As for my network access I'm signing up with Sprint now since they actually advertise great for streaming video and audio right on the features page. I also haven't heard of anyone getting term notices from Sprint for high usage.
