Internet Security Threat Report 2014

LineOne will find out on Friday whether it broke the Internet Service Providers Association's (ISPA) code of practice when it ditched unmetered Net access in July.

According to ISPA's guidelines, if LineOne is found to be in breach of the rules it could be ejected from the industry group.

LineOne maintains it did nothing wrong and conducted itself properly when it decided to call time on its unmetered service in July because it was losing money hand over fist.

The ISP blamed the demise of unmetered access on a number of punters who hogged and abused the service.

ISPA maintains the compensation offered to LineOne users was not enough. ®
