uploading limit

I would like to do an online storage backup.  Is there a daily upload limit for send data?

The short answer is there is no limit to either uplink or downlink traffic when connected via DSL or FiOS,

The longer answer is maybe. Verizon's Terms of service specifically prohibit certain uses:

" use it for high volume purposes, or engage in similar activities that constitute such use (commercial or non-commercial). "

No where does it say exactly  what constitutes high volume puposes. So your guess is as good as mine about where Verizon's threshold of 'pain' is. I know that FiOS users can easily go through 10gb uplink per month, and I have yet to hear about Verizon complaining (with a 20+mbps uplink connection, the megabytes can go by very quickly).

There are people on FiOS easily doing 20-40TB of data a month. Verizon really doesn't care, which is a great thing these days. It's why I'm with them and support them.

On my 1Mbps DSL line, I have personally left uploads running for over two weeks to YouTube. Didn't hear a peep from Verizon. I wouldn't worry about a backup program getting red flags set, as typically once the initial, big daddy backup is performed, the updates are just incremental and take very little upload to complete, typically.
