    You cannot go to jail

    I am considering trying this uncapping thing for one simple reason. I am paying my cable company for a 7Mb/s connection but all the testing I have done so far has only ever resulted in 1/2 of that speed. I don't think that's fair and I'm not one to pay for things that are not delivered to my satisfaction, so call me crusty =O

    Also it seems to me that the main reason no one here is willing to try to uncap their modem is the fear of arrest and/or jail. Well let me attempt to remove that fear for you all.

    I don't know for sure how each of you obtained your service with your provider but I do know how I did so I will assume it is much the same.

    I filled out an application and signed it. A technician came to my home and connected a cable modem for me and i was up and running.

    Sound familiar?

    Well then let me ask you this. Where is the contract with the signatures of all of the parties involved? I don't have one and niether does my provider!

    No contract - no case, therefore I cannot be charged with anything TYVM.

    chew on that for a while =D
