Build a business case: developing custom apps

Several hundred subscribers of BTopenworld SurfTime face eviction at the end of the month unless they curb their usage of the unmetered Internet access service.

Punters were contacted a month ago and told that SurfTime is not intended as a "always on" service and that they were in breach of T&Cs.

And they were warned that unless they behaved they’d be booted off the service.

El Reg reckons that those fingered by BT have about a fortnight to continue abusing their SurfTime service before getting the old BT heave-ho.

Of course, this isn't the first time BT has come down hard on those it suspects of heavy Net usage.

In October BT threatened to pull the plug on thousands of people on its Anytime dial-upservice for what it described as a "gross violation of our terms and conditions". ®
