AOL implement "Fair Use" policy

AOL implement "Fair Use" policy

AOL has become the latest broadband provider to implement a "Fair Use" policy for it's broadband customers.

AOL Broadband "Fair Use" policyAOL have been pretty vague with what levels they are using to implement their fair use policy at and the statement they released to customers read:

Quote from AOL:

A Fair Use policy means, for example, that we may introduce some form of network management if we feel that specific individuals are abusing their broadband usage beyond a level that would be considered reasonable. For example, using AOL Broadband 24 hours a day, every day, to continuously download large files is not a reasonable use for a residential service.

As another example, we might also manage the AOL Broadband service at
peak times to ensure everyone is getting a stable, reliable connection across the whole network. We believe that this policy will help us continue to deliver a high-quality broadband experience and that the vast majority of our broadband subscribers will benefit from the existence of a Fair Use policy.

Any customers wanting to contact or want to read the full statement they released can do so at
