Welcome to my world (and my FCC form 2000F complaint about the new Google Fiber ISP in my 'hood)

--- begin FCC complaint reference #12-C00422224 ---

Google's current Terms Of Service[1] for their fixed broadband internet service being deployed
initially here in Kansas City, Kansas, contain this text-

"You agree not to misuse the Services. This includes but is not limited to using the Services for
purposes that are illegal, are improper, infringe the rights of others, or adversely impact others’
enjoyment of the Services. A list of examples of prohibited activities appears here. "

where 'here' is a hyperlink[2] to a page including this text-

"Unless you have a written agreement with Google Fiber permitting you do so, you should not
host any type of server using your Google Fiber connection"

In my professional opinion as a graduate in Computer Engineering from the University of
Kansas (and incidentally brother of a google VP) I believe these terms of service are in violation
of FCC-10-201.
