Has CU-SeeMe a kamikaze protocol??

My provider Euronet in Holland has banned use of CU-SeeMe during the day
and only allows for it during nighttime from 2am till 8am.
My heavy protests have not helped at all sofar. Their argument is what
they claim the bad protocol of CU-SeeMe which pushes away bandwith in an
unacceptable way for other users. They call the CU-SeeMe protocol a
kamikaze protocol which they cannot use.

Can anyone tell me what the status is. My simple observation about many
hundreds of happy users from many providers all over the world makes it
unbelievable for me that they are right.

They employ a T1 connection directly to the states.

The only thing they do to accomodate CU-SeeMe users is that they have
set up a reflector where only Euronet users can connect. But I am not
interested in other Euronet users I want to see the rest of the world as

Any help appreciated,
