Hosting Servers Thru. AT&T Internet

Hi, is it against AT&T's TOS and internet policy if I host a server? I am looking into running a Minecraft server that anybody online can connect to using an IP address. And does this also apply to hosting web servers and setting up a NAS? Or can I only host it locally (like only people connected to the same network as I am can access it)? I am currently using the Fiber 1000 Home Internet plan (w/ HBO Max), if what type of plan I have matters.

I use to run a diablo 2 server and was shut down due to the traffic on the servers. This was a while ago so I don’t remember the terms

I might just get in touch directly with AT&T and ask them about it. I'll see if they updated or modified the terms.

ill also add that this was 15 years ago on old legacy dsl, i don't think it was because i ran a server i was labeled an abusive user due to the extreme amounts of data used.
