Tweak Your Modem; Get Busted For Stealing Bandwidth!

Net Service Theft Alleged 7 Men Indicted, Computer Equipment Seized!

Seven men whose computers were seized based on accusations that they altered modems to increase high-speed Internet cable service were indicted yesterday by a Lucas County grand jury.
The theft of the service - called bandwidth - from Buckeye Express, an Internet provider operated by Buckeye CableSystem, ended June 26 when authorities served search warrants and seized computers and modems at residences in Toledo and surrounding suburbs.
Toledo lawyer George Runner was among those indicted by the grand jury. He and six others were charged with unauthorized use of computer, cable, or telecommunications property, a fifth-degree felony that is punishable by up to one year in prison.

Authorities also are seeking charges against two juveniles.
Members of the Toledo police computer crimes task force and FBI agents seized computers and modems after authorities received information that someone in the residences had reconfigured computer systems to access excessive amounts of bandwidth.
The investigation into the pirating of bandwidth began after the cable company noticed an increase in usage among various subscribers, and went to authorities for assistance.
Paul Shryock, vice president of information technology at Buckeye CableSystem, said law enforcement efforts to investigate such theft and seek the indictment are not the usual way other companies address such activity.
"There have been no indications that other high-speed Internet providers have taken such firm steps to prosecute for the theft of broadband theft," Mr. Shryock said.
In addition to criminal charges, John Weglian, chief of the special units division of the prosecutor’s office, said the defendants could be forced to turn over the computer equipment taken in the search and could be ordered to pay restitution to Buckeye.
"Cyber crime is potentially very damaging to society. We are taking a firm position on that type of criminal activity. We hope these cases will have a deterrent value, given the cost factors for the defendants in successful prosecutions," Mr. Weglian said.
According to court documents, the computer equipment in Mr. Runner’s home was modified to increase the Internet service as early as Jan. 1.
Jerome Phillips, a Toledo attorney who represents Mr. Runner, said he questions whether the accusations lodged against his client constitute a crime.
"They paid for the service. There is a question if the additional software counts as a crime," he said.
He was not charged, but the village police chief, Mike Yunker, a Sylvania police detective, said he planned to file delinquency charges today in Lucas County Juvenile Court against 15 and 16-year-old boys for the altering of modems in their Sylvania homes.

It's scary that as I ***** and complain about the speed of the connection between my dsl line and my friend's cable line that I come across this on detnet.
Sending files from DSL to the Cable system users in my city is so slow i might as well write the files to 600 floppy disks and walk them half way across town.. At least they'd get there before the next full moon.

that does suck that isp's are that gay to prosecute people for that because precious family browsers are being denied of their 60k/sec ofr looking at their email but to be honest there's no real legal footing you can use to argue against what they did.

In my tiny town (Memphis TN) people with newer cable modems are doing this, hacking the firmware of the CM. Luckily, my cable modem is so freakin old('bout 4.5 years) it has no software/hardware/BWlimiting to hack. when ever i hear stories like this one, I cross my fingers and hope it lasts forever.

My friend recently moved across town and they tricked him into taking one of the new ones, Sucker?! But what would he know about networking, he is only an MCSE.

A few of my friends in the UK have uncapped their modems. Though when they were cought, all they got was a week suspension from the service. One guy was actually banned permanently but the rest were just given warnings and let back on afterward.
