    Uncapping Cable Modems is legal or not. I got a friend with adelphia power link in souther california and his speeds ranged 1.6 to 1.8 testing them in www.speedguide.net
    Another thing i heard cable companies limit your downloads to 2.5 gigs in every month. if thats true hahahah thats ridiculous speed is good but i donwload huge amounts gigs. I need to know if they do limit your downloads if not i am switching to cable.

    Some cable companies limit how much you can download per month, some don't. You'd have to call your local cable compay and ask.

    Uncapping Cable modems is ILLEGAL

    As for the gig a month stuff that just depends on the ISP I download well over 35 gig a month and upload about 10

    Companies such as AT&T have a policy of banning people who uncap their modems from the service...and I don't mean ban..apologize get service back..I mean they are banned for life from getting cable modem service through AT&T Broadband this is no joke there is a guy on www.DSLreports.com who made the front page because he is begging them to get his acct back but they already said nope heh

    yeah, im with Telstra Bigpond ADSL (im from australia), it costs me A$89 per month. 512kbs download, 256 upload. i get 3g/b per bonth download and they charge me 20 cents for every meg i go over that. fucking tight arsed buggars.

    ive got the shits with them, but due to there being only two companies offering cable, and the fact that i cant get cable to my house AND Telstra is the only company selling ADSL, im stuck.

    expensive crappy broadband Vs cheap slow crappy dial up.
