I’m looking for a *legal* way to consume as much of my ISP-allotted bandwidth as possible as consistently as possible. I figured this group would have a good sense of how to accomplish this.
My goal here is to have my ISP terminate my account for violating their acceptable use policy (for, e.g.: running a server or consuming excessive bandwidth).
My plan now is to do one of the following:
1. Host a bunch of linux distro torrents.
2. Run a script that streams PornHub/YouTube all day (might get IP banned).
3. Run a script that runs internet speed tests all day (might get IP banned).
This is a 200/30 cable internet connection w/o (published) monthly caps. I can connect a Raspberry Pi 3B+ directly to the modem to run scripts, server software, etc.
Am I missing any obvious options? Anyone have more creative ideas?
**Edit:** Pro-social methods preferred (my ISP’s interests aside). That is, something morally equivalent to seeding Linux distos as opposed to continuously leeching from the community.
Why? My condo board signed a 3 year contract with Altice and requires all residents to pay through our maintenance. In my area, Altice is a dumpster fire that was barely usable before COVID; it’s a joke now that everyone is working from home. I switched to Verizon FiOS (fiber), but now I’m paying twice for internet. If I get kicked off of Altice, I can make the case that I should no longer have to pay. Worst case, my appeal fails and I stay banned from a service that I never plan on using again, anyway. **Edit:** I pay for cable through my maintenance fees but otherwise deal with Altice as though I’m an individual subscriber. Service enters my apartment through coax and my own modem.
