Of course they are. They're selling transit to their cable > modem customers, surely? Quote from a typical terms of service agreement: | (b) Subscriber will not resell the Service, or any portion thereof, or | otherwise charge others to use the Service, or any portion | thereof. The Service is for personal use only, and Subscriber agrees | not to use the Service for operation as an Internet Service Provider, | to host web sites for other parties or for any other business | enterprise or to connect the Cable modem to any server or to any | computer outside of the Subscriber's premises. | | (c) Without Time Warner Cable 's prior written approval, Subscriber | shall not post or transmit through the Service any material that | constitutes or contains advertising or any solicitation with respect | to products or services, nor shall Subscriber transmit bulk e-mail | without prior written permission from Time Warner Cable. IP transit has no such restrictions.
