Verizon's absurd data TOS

MocoNews brings to light some unenforceable terms from the Verizon TOS for NationalAccess (1xRTT) and BroadbandAccess (EV-DO):

Unlimited NationalAccess/BroadbandAccess services cannot be used (1) for uploading, downloading or streaming of movies, music or games, (2) with server devices or with host computer applications, including, but not limited to, Web camera posts or broadcasts, automatic data feeds, Voice over IP (VoIP), automated machine-to-machine connections, or peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing, or (3) as a substitute or backup for private lines or dedicated data connections.

I can imagine a group of lawyers representing different divisions of Verizon working together to craft this TOS, and in the process finding a way to render the service practically useless.
