Iâ??m not asking you to critique TORs, Iâ??m asking that you tell us the TOS restriction that you believe is so obvious to everyone? Because itâ??s not obvious to me, and I own an ISP. 

A few examples:


You are prohibited from reselling or permitting another to resell the Service(s) in whole or in part, or using or permitting another to use the Xfinity Equipment or the Service(s), directly or indirectly, for any unlawful purpose, including, but not limited to, in violation of any policy we post applicable to the Service(s).




Also, you agree not to use the Service for high volume or excessive use, in a business or for any commercial purpose if your Service is a residential service, or in a way that impacts CenturyLink network resources or CenturyLinkâ??s ability to provide services. You agree not to: (i) offer public information services (unlimited usage or otherwise), or (ii) permit more than one high-speed Internet log-on session to be active at one time, except if using a roaming account when traveling, in which case 2 sessions may be active. A log-on session represents an active connection to your Internet access provider. The active session may be shared to connect multiple computers/devices within a single home or office location or within a single unit within a multiple dwelling unit (e.g., single apartment or office within an apartment complex) to your modem and/or router to access the Service (including the establishment of a wireless fidelity (â??WiFiâ??) hotspot), but the Service may only be used at the single home or office location or single unit within a multiple dwelling unit for which Service is provisioned by CenturyLink.




you agree not to use or allow third parties to use the Services provided to you for any of the following purposes:


	â?¢ To make the Services available to anyone outside the property to which the Services are delivered, to resell the Services directly or indirectly, except as explicitly approved by Google Fiber in writing, or to create substitute or related services through the use of or access to the Services (for example, to provide Wi-Fi services to third parties outside of your residence).
