Whether or not they can block services/ports/websites relies completely on your contract with said company. If you sign a user agreement when you start the service that gives them the right to block certain things, then they absolutely have every right to do so without fear of repercussions.

My home internet service is through my cell phone. I signed a contract with them that gives them the right to limit me if I take too much bandwidth. Its not a service that is meant for high bandwidth consumption.

Which is likely why they block things like speed tests.

Well, that's a whole different case then :)

I thought you were talking about a normal, PC internet service.

I meant that as in the traditional way of surfing the internet :)

Anyway, I am familiar with the term, yes.

I'm VERY happy with the upload speeds. Holy cow. It made a HUGE difference when I was working tonight. I upload videos for my boss, and it made a giant difference :)
