Re: Required to register new modem?

I've read in several posts here in the WOW form that an unprovisioned modem will provide internet access, just at very slow speeds. I haven't tested this myself though so that might not be true in all areas. Most providers, such as Comcast, Mediacom etc do not allow this to happen. Upon connecting a modem via coax, you'll be directed to an activation page and cannot access anything outside that page, referred to as a walled garden.
