Common ISP TOS/AUP

Postby streaker69 » Fri Feb 10, 2006 5:00 am

Since we see alot of people coming here and asking about sharing with their neighbors or connecting with their buddy down the street, I kinda thought it would be a good idea to collect TOS/AUP from as many ISP's that we can.

Please follow the format I'm about to set when entering new ones so that everything looks nice and consistant.
