If it says "unlimited" absolutely. That's what unlimited means. The
ISPs I've worked for have never used the term, and enough providers have been
burnt by this that the majority seem to have stopped using the term
"unlimited." The others attempt to redefine the word in ther TOS, which is
B.S. but that's really between the consumer and their provider.
