What about security? Is a cable modem safe?
We have taken extra steps to ensure you have a secure connection. Your "packets" are securely routed directly to you through the security methods engineered by CableLabs and Cable ONE. Does this mean you should not worry? No. Any computer connected to the Internet is at risk. Since a PC with a dedicated connection is "always-on," the risk is greater. This risk is not exclusive to cable. DSL and others have the same risk. At minimum, you should disable file sharing on Windows. If you have important information on your computer, you should talk with your computer manufacturer or local computer dealer about a "firewall."
