Yes, I think they just recently discovered that this is true.. and I'm going out on a limb here, but given the time stamp on the story, maybe these people have some sort of a time machine they've only recently discovered:

There's a book, "Hacking the Cable Modem", written by DerEngel of TCNiSO.Net. Compare to "Hacking the XBox" by Bunnie Huang.

TCNiSO looks like they have just released a new BlackcatUSB device for the SB4xxx and SB51xx series Motorola SurfBoard modems. These devices starting shipping yesterday so check out the TCNiSO forums soon for the results.

If your network is downgradable to DOCSIS 1.0 I suggest getting a SB4200 and the new BlackCatUSB. If not, go with any SB51xx. If you want sniffing and higher speeds then you'll want a SB51xx, probably the SB5120.

The sole cable provider in my area has made it impossible to uncap very recently. It's less hassle usually to buy the upgrade the provider makes available. These factors, in addition to the usual problems with voiding warranties and committing what skirts the edge of legality (particularly if you use it to steal service) -- have turned cable modem hacking into a novelty.

From what I've heard, TCNiSO isn't the only game in town for cable modem hacking anymore, but I haven't verified these rumors.

If you already have a modified modem or have access to a BlackCat you would like to install on an unmodified device, but do not have a firmware license, you can use this software, which is available to non-members:
Firmware: http://www.tcniso.net/Nav/Firmware/SIGMA-X2_130.rar
Configuration: http://www.tcniso.net/Nav/NoStarch/download.php?file=BlackcatFreeware.rar

On the plus side of becoming a member, all TCNiSO members can purchase a Blaster360 mod for their Xbox360 at a discounted price. If you're really into hardware modification, then this sort of deal is probably up your alley.

depends how it is being done, if it is application layer, pure bandwidth, protocol layer, etc

For application or protocol layer shaping you can encapsulate or sometimes encrypt. Or just change ISP to one that doesn't suck?
