I just thought once you download a webpage to a browser, you are not using that connection any longer (unless you are streaming video/music).
    The owner and even manager of any web site will see your IP address as well as how long you visited while it will be the ISP who will be the one charging you since they can track everything! That's who provides the service to begin with. Law enforcement can even see to subpoenaed ISP records when putting a stop on illegal activities. So "Big Brother" is also able to watch at times!

    And for you popeye this was something I got told by the owner of the laptop who lacks in understanding a number of things when originally making that statement. Nothing was specific but could well have been from downloads as well as anything else besides simply browsing. At the time I found the charged for page to be a little obscure from what was actually going on. That was about 5 or 6yrs. ago however when hearing that one.

    I am 67 and have got all the latest upgrades and smart phone, I have to as I live with my young grand daughters who are into that and I have to keep up with it all because if any of it goes wrong they bring it to me to sort out, and also all their computers and tablets have windows 10 on so it is me that sorts it all out.
    Do I enjoy it of course I do it keeps me young and my brain active and will do so in many years to come

    Then again, I'll probably be dead in 10-20 years. New folks at the wheel now.

    Even with Linux, some distro have similar things but they don't hide it. Have you ever read Opensuse gnome eula? It is interesting to say the least. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a link to the Opensuse gnome EULA but Opensuse now has two newer released versions but the download links seem messed up.

    I understand. I'm in a similar situation, only mine is younger. She lives on the phone, facebook and instant messenger. I have trouble keeping up. She can type faster with 2 thumbs than I can on this keyboard.

    This page seems to work good and some links on it for License, Documentation, etc. It's a larger download than what I've used for other distributions/distros, am running Linux Mint 17.2 on a Desktop and a Notebook.
