I think most of these no-server-on-the-net bans has its origin in the Internet-over-
cable-tv market where the upstream channel is limited and shared.

When using ethernet technology as connection method this is no longer the case. The
user will only swamp his own connection to the network, not the neighbourhood.

In fact, while at B2, we had no ban on servers at home. On the countrary, the more
data people send between themselves in the network the less they use expensive
transatlantic connections.

I guess that some ISPs have continued to use the same service agreements for different
services and forgotten about the reason why that paragraph  was put there in the first
place. I mean, what is really the "bad thing" with people having servers at home if
the capacity problem is taken out of the equation?
