Pornography: Pornography is prohibited on any COMNET A.S. server. COMNET A.S. will be the sole arbiter as to what constitutes a violation of this provision, but in general, if it's legal for all ages to see, it's ok, if you have to be 18 or 21 to view, then it's not ok.

Subscriber may elect to have their bandwidth capped at any amount at their choice, or they may elect to have no cap and simply pay for the additional bandwidth used above what is included in the subscriber's package.

Subscribers are only allocated IPs that they will use within 24 hours. Subscribers are not allowed to keep IPs in reserve.
