Thread: Uncapping Cable

  1. #1
    If I were to uncap my cable modem, Is there a high probability that I will get caught? I'm just wondering because a speed boost would be great.

    Hmm, ok. What about changing the cap to a sensible speed, IE from 600k to 1mb? Will they detect that or not?

    I&#39;m pretty sure its still pretty shady. I&#39;ve heard that you get easily discovered, and the consequences are very bad...

    I would just recommend not tampering with it.

    at the end of the day, it&#39;s up to you...however, it&#39;s dangerous to uncap the modem...your cable company (ntl?) will find out pretty quickly and will either warn you or stop your account...

    Yeah, i use NTL.

    I wont try it if its that easy to get caught. Too dangerous and I dont want to loose my connection completley.

    my cousin uncapped his modem, for a few minutes, he got some great speeds, but he put it back as he didnt wanna loose his subscrition, in fact im sure u always have to keep updating the info stored in the modem, and thisi is sent across the network every so often i think. so even if u did uncap, it would prob be back to norm next time.
    anyway i wouldnt do it, in the last monthly update i got from my isp, blueyonder in the uk, they were clamping down on people uncaping modems, aint worth it.
