13. Traffic Utilization: Package subscriptions are subject to suspension should billable traffic exceed double the subscribed package. Subscribers are strongly encouraged to visit our individual usage page to monitor their daily utilization. This automated suspension system was designed to help prevent computers with run-away viri or run-away Person to Person File sharing programs from generating the subscriber unexpected and undesired costs. Please see our rates page for various package sizes and excess fees. Accounts are automatically suspended, but can be re-activated quickly once the subscriber confirms that they are aware of the excess traffic generated from their connection.
