I want a dozen security cameras feeding uncompressed 4k video into the cloud. To me "unlimited means unlimited in the ENGLISH Language" ....
I 4 1 hate it when unlimited is redefined to include some qualifiers for marketing purposes -- very misleading.
Here's guy with 9358GB usage over 3 months getting a letter from Rogers, threatening him to disconnect the service if he doesn't lower his usage.»i.imgur.com/WBstm UA.png» ··· nternet/Should Rogers end this marketing ploy and stop advertising their internet plans as "unlimited". They can throttle it, but if they (the user) complains to the CRTC, they can tell Rogers "no you will not do this again". Rogers can throttle that user until the start of the next cycle. But sending a disconnection notice with an "unlimited" package might be crossing the line even if he uploaded 9TB. In Rogers eyes yes, but the CRTC has the final say on that. It would not surprise me if that user filed a complaint with the CRTC. Or I wonder if they are letting their friends and family stream media from their home server... Sometimes you need to slap me twice upside the head. Encrypting the file content, and being a hobbyist of computing.
If it's marketed as "Unlimited" Rogers can't send him notices suspending his services. My thing here is that it's advertised as "unlimited" usage. I had actually considered backing up my media to Amazon S3, and retiring my home server... Another possibilty is that they are maintaining their ratio on a private torrent site... the amount you save in electricity would cover part of the cost. Reading through the Reddit thread, the user uploads backups of multiple Virtual Machines (gaming and stuff), video editing file transfer/backup, no mention of file P2P sharing.

To find the right internet solution for your business, you first need to understand what makes a business’s internet needs different from that of consumers and larger companies.
This guide walks you through what factors to consider.
If the upload cap is 9TB, they should stop claiming "unlimited" and say the upload cap is 9TB. It is not too much to ask for Rogers to not lie about the product they are offering. Doesn't really matter, if rogers is billing it as unlimited then that's what it is.
Regardless of "terms of service" "fair use" or anything else, it becomes deceptive advertising, then it falls into various areas like CRTC regulations, advertising council regulations and so on.
