i find it stupid that one limits what one can do with the internet. There is no need to pay an extra few thousand a month just to get rid of the terms of service which prohibit the use.
Comcast prohibits use of servers, but many still host servers on their network.
So this means i cant put up a multiplayer game to play with friends? Most games have the ability for one to host a game by using their own computer as the host, in order to play mods or to not be interrupted by other random people joining the game.
Whether or not google says they prohibit it, many still will attempt and be successful to host a long term server on their network as google spreads their availability throughout the usa.
Unless they portscan every customer and check for open ports on the customers network every day and night, they will not find anyone who may be hosting a server. And port scanning can take a long time depending on the number of ports that they check.
i couldnt just be limited to viewing videos, and loading web pages. You wont be taking advantage of the gigabit speeds you are provided. And for one thing, providing a server does not have to be commercial, have any income (make money) or be widely popular. As a server can be limited to just small things, such as playing a quick game with friends or sharing a bit of information over FTP rather than having to upload the data, then have them download it making the file transfer a bit longer.
