Went over quota last month, so I paid the seven bucks to get more. This
morning, as I've done a couple times before[1], I send in the ticket[2]
to downgrade it again, and the answer I get is "we do not offer anything
lower then a 5 gig for NNTP any longer."

...huh? When did THIS happen? And how come both the terms of service[3]
and the knowledgebase[4] still think that it hasn't?

[1] tickets #2283181, #785430
[2] ticket #2650348
[3] http://www.speakeasy.net/tos/msa.php#9
"One Gigabyte of news throughput is provided for free per account
login each calendar month."
[4] answer Reference #001019-000000
"each customer only receives 1GB of download quota per month"

I still have free NNTP access.

It's pretty much moot for me though. I have an acceptible quote for a T1
and Speakeasy can't offer me access other than dial up in my current
location as COVAD isn't in my CO. So I'll probably not be their customer
any more in about 5 weeks.

Have had NNTP in the bundle since 1998; have it now using ADSL 6.0.

Have never some close to any bandwidth quota.
