I'm here as a result of a text search "hack modem forum", so if anyone is interested in the SEO and results and what keyword searches bring traffic to the site, that's how I got here.
I'm here (sort of) from "sbhacker) forum, which I joined yesterday, but they require paid membership in order to post and ask questions. I found that forum from watching a YouTube video from one of the DefCons named something like "hack1ng modems for fun and profit", but when I got there (to sbhacker) from what I've read either modem hack1ng is "dead", they consider modem hack1ng to be immoral, illegal, fattening and unethical, both, or whatever. Wasn't going to pay to rub elbows with people that couldn't seem to decide which side of the fence they were on.
My purpose here is to find out what options are available to me with regard to my ISP (Baja Broadband). We have a vacation home there and I do not appreciate the predatory pricing system they have set-up, and am looking for alternative and options. I've got a long history of forum participation, and in general once I've established myself on a forum I remain there long term. So I'm not a "wham, bam, thank-you ma'am" Member, looking to be spoon-fed for one particular purpose and then I'm gone forever. I also have along history of exploration and research into (let's call them) "alternative perspectives" with regard to computers, computing, etc... No expert, but in general once I set-out to do something or figure something out, I usually get where I'm going.
And I have something to give back. Glad to help others. I am good with computer repair, malware removal, Search Engine Optimization (with heavy emphasis on Local), Internet Marketing, and a wide range of odd skills and knowledge. 90% of what I've learned since High School and College has been acquired through forums just like this one, I have an appropriate sense of gratitude for that knowledge, and a desire to give back some of what I've gained to others. Just ask.
My immediate purpose here is to request some general direction. Obviously, read the forum posts, etc... but any help in refining that down a bit would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, and I'm glad to be here.
