Well, if you offer "unlimited" access then, yes, they should be
allowed to stay on 24x7 if they want to. Look up "unlimited" in your
Funk & Wagnalls - my Websters says it means "infinite, boundless, without
restriction." That's why ShaysNet only offers "unmetered occasional"
access. I suppose it would be asking too much for the FTC to investigate
the possibility of consumer fraud in offerings of "unlimited" access.
