I am not sure, but I imagine that the only difference between the

interesting is that even with the business DSL line, you are still not
allowed to run servers or use "excessive bandwidth," according to the ToS. A
subjective terms that lots of mainstream ISPs like to use to take your money
for a service they do not want you to use.

Well they specifically talk of company based mail and web servers on their business web page.

There is a difference between a "company" based service and a reseller's service.

It may seem like a legal hair, and it is. But the TOS stuff frequently makes an explicit reference to the difference.
