Re: We Won't Throttle, We'll Just Terminate

Sprint has sent out letters to users who are tethering and specifically torrenting. They send a cease and desist letter, then a termination of services letter. The customer is released from their contract with no penalty, and will have a date by which they will need to either port or lose their number. 1 customer had downloaded over 150gb of torrents and continued after getting the letter. Who here blames sprint for terminating this persons service? I'm glad they did. It gives the regular users a higher probability of keeping unlimited data.
