measured from when you first log-on to the Hotspot and will expire
at the end of the allocated time regardless of whether you are
browsing the Internet or not) and minute bundles (where you can
stop and start your internet access with a 1-year time limit during
which the length of time you purchased must be used).

restriction or termination of session.
