There's a lot of news sites that I can't even access no more. I use to be able to. It was working just fine the beginning of January. Please fix it. Websites being blocked is not something I agreed to when I chose Evolution.

We recently had a update to our system that affected Evolution plans. Over the years, content providers changed their delivery methods which made it difficult to to distinguish streaming when reporting usage.  For some customers prior to this upgrade our software incorrectly distinguished streaming media as web browsing. This update now better distinguishes it and if you've gone over your data you may have trouble visiting such sites as youtube, Facebook video and so on.  

We are aware of the issue of pages not displaying and are currently scrambling to resolve the issue.

When will it be fixed? It's causing frustration. How does that Liberty Plan work? I use only 40GB a month. Like how overloaded is NY?

I can't upload my weather data to Weather Underground because ftp upload is blocked. Why? I have classic, why is my account affected?
