Yep - the owners don't use computers.  They just wanna set it up b/c some prospecting tenants looked dissapointed when he said get your own internet.  The're quite happy to pay the $109 every month and provide it to them for free, 24/7 they can do 100TB all they care.  Might just try and see what happens.  Worst case just pay the early termination and withdraw the internet out. 

Yep, no one is monitoring it.  Had a look at our Fritzbox.  It uses list.  Well I arn't gonna insert them in manually and keep an eye on their use regularly.  I don't think it does show where they been to, maybe a more advanced AP/FW does.  The Fritzbox at least this cheaper one doesn't do QOS.

The Zenbu website says you can give it to friends and family for free with a username or all those who access it, it is still monitored by Zenbu.  Ok - does this relinquish the responsibility off the landlord? 

Responsibility will still lie with the account holder.

The website also says it cost the owner $0.10 per MB.  If the owner provides free access and they use 200GB for the month.  Does the owner need to pay?

No - the costs are only ever deducted from the earnings on the AP. If you're only providing free access then no charges

bbqroast: stick some WiFi points up (Ubiquiti's UniFi products are cheap and very good quality, from experience their products are also very easy to setup)

Cheap and good yeah but better suited to a bigger deployment - OP could provide the same through Fritz!Box or other ISP router, and avoid the fun that is UniFi management software :)
Believe the question really comes down to making sure that the non-computer person running the place doesn't end up with copyright infringement notices in the post.

OP it is a three strikes law here isn't it, so one option would be to just see how things went- if any issues then could put in a filter


I say here's your answer.. I been sharing my (rubbish speed) internet for the last 3-4 years, just cos there are so few ports on the nearest exchange and my neighbours couldn't get connected and, while i was concerned to start with - especially on the original 20Gb cap(!) -  even the neighbour with the 3 teenage sons didn't get me any grief from the 3 strikes law so glad in hindsight I didn't bother with the extra outlay and grief maintaining the filtering hardware/software after all...

Before unlimited plans came along, i had to surf at 64Kb for a couple days maybe 2-3 times total, till my cap reset at the end of the billing month, but with unlimited now.... no worries!

Also, if the unlimited use=kicked is a concern,  since the owners dont even use the net... why pay VDSL premium, just give them ADSL  and leave it at that?

Figured it be more kind to offer VDSL for very marginal cost more. Esp these days with streaming media and HD content.  The ISP pays for the wiring etc.  via the contract.

I'd be inclined to just provide it with little control as well.

I say put them on an unlimited plan, keep an eye on your letterbox and be done with it. 

As for adult material, are you going to implement a 'no overnight guests' rule as well? If so that's fine, but even then remember people will most likely get around these filters if they really want to.

another option if it just the 3 strike rule - get a VPN to a country without 3 strike rule, route all traffic through VPN, then all the P2P traffic is no longer going to a NZ IP address.  :)
