“We were thoughtful about making sure that we give customers enough flexibility, but we don’t want to see rampant abuse… there were a lot of things and features built into the product that are consistent with the user agreement that has terms and conditions of how they can and can’t be used. We’ve enforced them obviously in a way that I think has been customer-sensitive. You don’t see anybody complaining massively about it. We actively in any given month are looking at how particular users are using the product and have features and capabilities technically to limit what I would call rampant abuse. I would tell you that I think that’s the right way for the industry to be managed. Maybe some are going to adjust practices and approaches overtime to try to get their arms around that, but I don’t think it is the broadband providers’ role in making that happen. I think it is the owner of the application’s role in making that happen.”
