I just read their pollicy and didn't see anything about not being able
to use it for that purpose.  It does talk about doing it for business
but I found that verizon had a lot of restrictions too.

Okay good enough.  I was a little suspicious when he offered to rent us
second "static IP" for an additional $6.95 per month.  Go figure!  A
little mixing of terminology to obscure the real truth.  Another
I have about excite at home is that they won't allow you to use it for
telecommuting and I find that to be an accessibility issue especially
those who are persons with disabilities because we all pay for our own
broadband service no matter what we use it for.  But that's not an issue
we  need to discuss here.  DSL providers don't care or seem to want to
prevent  you from using your broadband connection for accessing your
employer's network.
