Re: Ultimate - Stuck on 75/2 (new Subscriber)

You can't uncap cable modems ever since BPI+. Rogers probably invested more resources in network security than any other North American MSO. Not so many years ago, it was possible to find uncapped cable modems, along with bootleg DVDs and other counterfeit merchandise sold in broad daylight at Pacific Mall in Toronto. A lot of these operations got busted, and rightly so. They (along with vendors, CableLabs etc) regularly have people browsing sbhacker and other "experimental" forums to look for the latest hack so they can be the first to patch it. The most you can do these days is clone a modem of another user, on another headend, subscribed to a different service. The usage is still logged though, and if you go over the cap, they pay... if they did not consent to the extra usage charges, and its reported, his MAC will be taken off the network.
